This Edinburgh-based outreach project is a partnership with the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Glasgow. Forming part of their Contemporary art and human rights series, it explores sectarianism and the related issues of nation, identity & territorialism.
From January – May 2007 participants from the Adult Learning Project, Tollcross, Edinburgh, worked alongside contemporary artists Lisa Fleming and Craig MacLean to investigate the collections of the National Galleries and Glasgow Museums. Also researching the messages conveyed by Edinburgh’s architecture, the group combined practical photography and research to create an innovative installation based on the Edinburgh skyline that addressed the project’s themes.
The resulting artwork was exhibited at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in June 2007 and is currently on show at GoMA, Glasgow until 28th October 2007.
The project is supported by Nil by Mouth and has funding from the Scottish Executive, the Scottish Arts Council, Sense Over Sectarianism and the Hugh Fraser Foundation.
