Review of Joanne's current exhibitions in Glasgow and Edinburgh

Joanne's exhibition The New Savoy House on show from the 14th of September - 9th of October 2015. Drawing from cultural histories and exploring visual identities of the centre, The New Savoy Picture
House reflects primarily on the previous use of the building as a picture house designed specifically as a safe space for women. Re-animating Guthrie and Wells interior features, the palm court, marble pillars, fountain, and chequered floor, Dawson will present new installation of sculpture and print.

In the past, film dominated Glasgow - cinema culture was used as a ritual of escape from everyday life in over 130 picture houses. The building was demolished in 1972 except for the grade b listed facade, which currently fronts Glasgow’s largest indoor market place known as The Savoy Centre.
