2018 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. To mark the occasion, the city of Glasgow is hosting a temporary exhibition from 30th March – 14 August 2018 at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The exhibition brings together a number of pieces from Glasgow’s civic collection which have never been shown or displayed in Glasgow for 30 years or more. These include objects across a wide range of media by contemporaries of Mackintosh, including Frances and Margaret Macdonald, Talwin Morris, Ann Macbeth and Jessie Marion King.
