Glasgow.- A unique and often revealing study of the construction of the Zaha Hadid designed Riverside Museum will open at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum on April 15. ‘Drawing (on) Riverside’ by Patricia Cain features around 100 works, forming a powerful body of work from an award winning artist who explores the development of the £74million museum in drawing, painting and sculpture highlighting the different phases of construction. It features many new works and runs until 14 August 2011. Patricia Cain has become a familiar figure on the site of Glasgow’s new transport museum and her work based on the project has already won the prestigious Threadneedle Prize and the Aspect Prize. Construction on the Riverside Museum began in late 2007 and it will open to the public on June 21 2011. Councillor George Redmond, Chair of Glasgow Life said: “Anyone who sees the works Patricia Cain has been creating that are based on Riverside will be astonished by her unique vision and the detail she has captured of Britain’s most exciting museum project.
