For Robert Burns
A new print by Tom Phillips is exhibited in the group show Inspired which celebrates the life and work of Robert Burns on the 250th anniversary of his birth. The silkscreen and epson print, a newly worked page from Phillips's treated Victorian novel A Humument, is titled For Robert Burns with Best Wishes from Elvis Presley.
Inspired is at the Old Reading Hall at The Mitchell Library, Glasgow. It opened on 4th April 2009 and runs until 20th September 2009.
The exhibition features contemporary works of art alongside several Burns relics. The contemporary pieces are primarily new unseen works by artist's such as Tracy Emin, The Chapman Brothers and Peter Howson.
An online version of the exhibition can be seen here.
