Illuminating Letters 01 Oct 2017 – 25 Mar
Mackintosh Interpretation Centre

This exhibition takes its starting point from the relationship between Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret MacDonald; particularly his view that she was the creative force within their relationship, a revelation found documented in a private letter written by Mackintosh.

Using this letter and other letters researched at the Hunterian’s Mackintosh archive collection, the exhibition builds on this sense of revealed, discovered things. The artworks will be expressed as imagery of rare flora & fauna in the mediums of screenprint; diamond dust and also precious metals with excerpts of correspondence between Siobhan Healy and Sir David Attenborough. This will give a sense of these personal stories being transient, precious and ethereal.

This exhibition is part of The Lighthouse's Mackintosh Festival celebrations.
