There will be an exhibition of work by Hugh Hood called ‘Glasgow 1974’ and Donald John MacLean ‘The Truth - Even if it Didn’t Happen’ at The Lillie Art Gallery, Milngavie, from June 7 to July 4.

Hood’s work from 1974-1978 captures a unique period in Glasgow’s social and architectural history when half of the the city’s tenements were being demolished and the other half undergoing transformation and construction.

This Glasgow was a ‘frazzled interzone’ as the writer and journalist Allan Brown has written, which Hood’s images reflect without ‘sentiment or nostalgia’.

MacLean’s work seeks to capture the loneliness of life within the realms of a busy city centre, the subjects appear ghost like, lost within the busy realms of the city where people appear like strangers to one another.

This has been organised in association with Streetlevel Photoworks, Trongate.
