Whereabouts of presentation stools left in McLellan Gallery when GSA took occupancy

K Healy made this Freedom of Information request to The Glasgow School of Art

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The Glasgow School of Art did not have the information requested.

Dear The Glasgow School of Art,

I am looking for information on the whereabouts of a set of stools presented by the Association of Master Wrights to the Lord Provost in the McLellan Galleries and to the City of Glasgow to commemorate the 1990 European Year of Culture.

The stools were designed by Tamsin Howe of Glasgow School of Art and made by Joseph Adams, a staff member at Glasgow School of Art.

A Freedom of Information request to Glasgow Life stated they were no longer in possession of the stools which had been left in the McClellan Galleries when they vacated the premises in 2006. They suggested that since the stools had not been moved due to their weight, that Glasgow School of Art would be better placed to inform me what had happened to them, since they were the next tenants to take possession of the building.(foi response here https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/5...)

Can you please tell me if GSA have possession of these stools either in the McLellan Galleries or elsewhere? If so, can you tell me the condition of the stools? If not, can you tell me the whereabouts of the stools? If you are unaware of the current whereabouts can you please tell me whether the stools were in the McLellan Gallery when GSA became occupants of the building and at what point their whereabouts became unknown? If you are unable to tell me whether the stools were In situ when GSA took occupancy of the McLellan Galleries, can you tell me if you have an inventory of items that were left in the McLellan Galleries when you took possession, made either by yourselves or Glasgow Life and what items this contained?

I look forward to hearing from you

Yours faithfully,
K Healy on behalf of Joseph Adams

Foicoor, The Glasgow School of Art

Dear Ms Healy,

 

Our Ref: Freedom of Information Request (18/19 295)

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request, which was received by
the Glasgow School of Art on 3 November 2018.

 

The responses below are provided in response to the questions contained
within your FOI request.

 

Can you please tell me if GSA have possession of these stools either in
the McLellan Galleries or elsewhere?

·         The GSA does not have, or ever knowingly possessed, the stools.

 

If so, can you tell me the condition of the stools? If not, can you tell
me the whereabouts of the stools?

·         The stools are not part of the GSA’s Collections.

 

If you are unaware of the current whereabouts can you please tell me
whether the stools were in the McLellan Gallery when GSA became occupants
of the building and at what point their whereabouts became unknown?

·         The stools were not in situ when GSA became occupants of the
McLellan Gallery.

 

If you are unable to tell me whether the stools were In situ when GSA took
occupancy of the McLellan Galleries, can you tell me if you have an
inventory of items that were left in the McLellan Galleries when you took
possession, made either by yourselves or Glasgow Life and what items this
contained?

·         GSA does not possess an inventory of items from the date of
occupancy. It may be that the landlord (Glasgow City Council) would have
undertaken this prior to leasing to the GSA.
