In 1989 a significant event occurred at Paisley Museum; one of the best kept secrets of Scottish contemporary art. A group of 17 emerging artists from The Glasgow School of Art staged an exhibition called "Information". The majority of these artists were to become key practitioners of their art and several were to win or be short-listed for the Turner prize. They included Dave Allen, Claire Barclay, Martin Boyce, Roddy Buchanan, Nathan Coley, Jackie Donachie, Douglas Gordon, Michael McDonough, Craig Richardson, Ross Sinclair and Karen Vaughan.
The original "Information" exhibition will be remembered and documented. In the spirit of the original "Information" exhibition, current Glasgow School of Art MLitt students have been invited to respond to the theme of "Information" within the particular context of Paisley Museum.
