The Modern Institute Contemporary Art Gallery project involved the refurbishment of one of Glasgow's last remaining bathhouse and washhouse into a modern art gallery. Relocating to the Trongate area of Glasgow has allowed the Modern Institute to help define and influence the character of Glasgow's developing arts quarter. The Modern Institute is one of the most talked-about art galleries in the country and has contributed to Glasgow's prominence in the art world through its association with some of the biggest names in contemporary art. The Modern Institute works with 42 internationally established and emerging artists and has been associated with some of the biggest names in contemporary art, including Turner Prize winners Martin Boyce, Richard Wright, and Simon Starling. The building has in its small way acted as a catalyst for regeneration and continued investment in the developing arts district.
