Beyond the Border: New Contemporary Photography from Scotland

  • 11 February — 13 May 2017 *on now

Since the 2014 referendum on Scottish independence, Scotland has faced an ongoing intense period of scrutiny. Political shifts in the 2015 general election and the 2016 European referendum ensure Scotland remains in the spotlight of national, and indeed international, politics. As the country continues to go through a period of reflection, change and re-evaluation, Beyond the Border by photography collective Document Scotland, is a timely examination of Scottish identity aiming to challenge clichés and explore the land its people and identity.

Sophie Gerrard’s Drawn to the Land is an intimate look at the role women farmers and crofters play in shaping the rural Scottish landscape.

Scottish Colourists from the Fleming Collection

  • 26 May — 15 October 2017

With works on loan from the prestigious Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation, which owns the finest collection of Scottish art outside institutions, this new exhibition features work from the four key Scottish Colourist artists, alongside a number of artists who were early influencers of their work.

The four artists, FCB Cadell, JD Fergusson, GL Hunter and SJ Peploe, who later became known as the Scottish Colourists, represent some of the greatest achievements in Scottish art and are amongst the most admired of early twentieth century British painters.

The Colourists were among the first painters in Britain to see themselves as modern in a European context, spending time in France, early in their careers. Their direct contact with French Post-Impressionism, the work of Henri Matisse and other Fauve artists, inspired them to create some of the most innovative British art of the period.

A stunning and unmissable exhibition.
