‘Art, Landscape and Space’ study day

I’m delighted that my paper about the sculpture in the grounds of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art has been selected for inclusion in the Scottish Society for Art History‘s ‘Art, Landscape and Space‘ study day on 6 February 2021.

The study day will explore the relationship between art, landscape and space, including natural, built and cultural landscapes. I will talk about key works sited or performed in the grounds of Modern One and Modern Two. They include Work no. 975 EVERYTHING’S GOING TO BE ALRIGHT, 2008 by Martin Creed (b.1968), made from blue neon and installed on the facade of Modern One and the Prolific Potato performance by Monster Chetwynd (b.1973), which took place throughout the grounds of Modern One and Modern Two in 2019. I will also discuss the developing concept for the grounds as a whole, a space well used by the community and featuring civic allotments.

Information about the study days and free tickets can be found on eventbrite. I hope to see you then!
