b l u e p r i n t  is a collaboration between a number of Glasgow galleries, archives and museums taking place in February 2013.

Initially conceived as an exploration of the links between alternative photographic processes and fine art photographic printmaking (printing with ink), the event has grown in scope to encompass seven exhibitions, organized visits to five important archives, a programme of lectures and tie-ins with various engineering organizations.

b l u e p r i n t has its hub at Trongate 103 in Glasgow’s Merchant City. The map page shows all the locations. Click on the link Participating Organizations on the left to be taken to each of the organizations’ own b l u e p r i n t pages and their detailed programme and location information.
