AS Glasgow Women's Library marks its 30th anniversary, an American exhibition on issues with housing from 1989 has been re-imagined for Scottish tenants.

It is part of the Life Support: Forms of Care in Art and Activism show which is currently running until October 16 and dealing with themes such as health and housing inequality at the Glasgow East End library.

American artist and theorist Martha Rosler worked with Scotland's tenant's union Living Rent to produce a new iteration of her exhibition project If You Lived Here... that was first presented at the Dia Art Foundation in New York in 1989.

The project addresses housing problems, homelessness and the impact gentrification has on communities.

The new iteration of If You Lived Here... that has been created for Life Support details the histories of housing in Scotland.

"We’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with curators who share our values and commitment to address urgent and deep issues of inequality. Life Support is a potent combination of art, activism and the powerhouse of our collections.

"Life Support is a milestone exhibition for us in so many respects, conjured at a time when issues of gentrification, women's and public spaces and the experiences of home and 'care' could not be more contested. Visitors to our remarkable home in Bridgeton will encounter an array of thought-provoking and moving works from some of the most legendary figureheads of feminist art.”

Life Support: Forms of Care in Art and Activism runs until Saturday, October 16 at Glasgow Women's Library and has more exhibitions at the venue with more information including opening times available here.
