Throughout 2019 The Common Guild are presenting an ambitious series of talks that aims to generate discussion around the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today.

The talks take place in a range of venues, new and old, and the series includes artists, architects, curators and others. We are delighted to welcome Jamie Fobert to speak at The Mackintosh Church on 20 June.

Fobert is a London-based architect and designer. Since establishing Jamie Fobert Architects in 1996, he has consistently produced innovative and inspiring architecture in projects ranging from individual houses to high quality retail and significant public buildings for the arts. During this time, the practice has won a number of major public commissions for cultural organisations including the new Tate St Ives, which opened to great public acclaim in October 2017, extensions to Kettle’s Yard Gallery and Charleston House, both of which opened to the public last year and most recently, The National Portrait Gallery.

The Mackintosh Church in Queen’s Cross is one of Glasgow’s hidden architectural gems. Built in 1898, it is the only church designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Refreshments will be served after the event.

The Mackintosh Church is a fully accessible venue. There is a portable audio induction loop in place for use by people with hearing aids, a BSL interpreter is available by appointment (this must be requested at least 1 week prior to the event date). Assistance dogs are welcome. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding access.
