SSA 2013

The Society of Scottish Artists 117th Annual Exhibition

  • 5 — 20 December 2014 *on now

The SSA continues its tradition of holding an Annual Contemporary Open Exhibition in the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) in Princes Street, Edinburgh.

Installation, video, computer and performance art alongside a strong core of works in traditional media result in challenging and invigorating shows. In an art-world where the divide between “new genres” and “traditional media” has rarely been wider, the SSA plays a unique and vital role in bridging the gap.

The SSA supports emerging and experimental artists in a number of practical ways. Each year the SSA selects a number of graduating students from the five Scottish art college degree shows to exhibit in the Annual Exhibition. It also accepts proposals for installations and performance events selected through open submission.
