Closure of Facilities- Friday 3rd August 2018

Following on from previous notices about the above event, members are reminded     that on Friday 3rd August the pool, sauna suite, mixed sauna and hot room areas will close from 4pm as the club hosts Janice Kerbel’s major new artwork “Sink”.  The gym and sports hall will still be accessible, however, there will be no changing facilities available from 4pm onwards.

We appreciate this is an inconvenience, however, we hope members recognize the prestige for the Western Baths in being approached to take part in this large European event.

“SINK” has been commissioned by The Common Guild as part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. It is Kerbel’s largest project to date, and builds on her existent relationship with The Common Guild and Glasgow, where her work “DOUG” was commissioned and first presented in the Mitchell Library in 2014.  Kerbel was shortlisted for the 2015 Turner Prize for this work, which was reconfigured and re-presented in the Turner Prize exhibition at Tramway.

The events itself will take the form of 4 @15 minute synchronised swimming performances.  Further details and ticket information can be found at the following website:
