The Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is the most visited modern art gallery in Scotland.
Housed in an iconic building located in the heart of Glasgow, which it shares with the city centre library, GoMA plays an important part in the city’s rich heritage which continues today.
For over 100 years the building was a centre for business and commercial exchange where information and goods were traded. GoMA continues that philosophy of exchange by being a centre for people to gather, discuss and learn, inspired by the art it collects and shows.
Because Glasgow is world famous for the artists that live and study here, GoMA collects and borrows work that highlights the interests, influences and working methods artists from around the world share with those from Glasgow. As the centre for Glasgow’s modern art collection, its changing displays are inspired by what the City owns.
GoMA ‘s public programme uses modern art for an exchange of powerful ideas about life and human experiences. Artists’ talks, workshops, projects and regular family activities, offer people of all ages a chance to explore and realise their own artistic potential.
The Library at GoMA, houses a café, free internet access terminals, and an extensive collection of art and design books alongside its general books for loan.
