Exhibition Ended

Beings on Tour

Raquet Hall, Eglinton Country Park, Irvine

From Fri 26 Jul 2019 - Mon 26 Aug 2019

This exhibition has now ended!


This exhibition exploring young people’s wellbeing is on tour to North Ayrshire. It features the surreal ‘Wedding Ceremony’ photographic display, created by young people from the local area, alongside other artworks and videos exploring different ways into young people’s minds.

In this interactive exhibition, young people explore their feelings by creating new art in direct response to particular works of art from our collection. This experimental display presents these artworks alongside each other to form a collective mind-map. The aim is to create a visual environment where all responses are valued, including those of the visitors. Beings is a National Galleries of Scotland Learning project and exhibition co-produced by young people.

This exhibition is supported by North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership and North Ayrshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership.
