Boy Trouble: Some Problems Resulting from 'Gendered' Representation of Glasgow's Culture in the Education of Women Artists and Designers

Volume 16.1   1997



This essay is written as Glasgow celebrates its (unilaterally - nominated ) year as UK City of Visual Arts and anticipates its year as UK City of Design and Architecture in 1999. In it I will suggest that women's participation in art and design (education) in Glasgow can be read as both problematic and political, pioneering and yet historically and currently contingent as Moi argues on 'binary oppositions'.
