ECA | Running Up That Hill

Saturday 29 April - Saturday 13 May
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Preview Friday 28 April, 6pm

“Running Up That Hill” is an exhibition showcasing the progressing art practices of third year Edinburgh College of Art students from the four disciplines of Painting, Intermedia, Sculpture and Photography. The exhibition encapsulates a variety of perspectives reflecting the exciting diversity of ways in which our generation is approaching contemporary art practice. From the navigation of everyday society and the re-examination of conditions rooted in art history to the creation of imagined worlds and narratives, a range of themes are explored as we are all Running Up That Hill.

All at Once

Tuesday 16 May - Sunday 4 June
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

ALL AT ONCE is something you can chant at the end of a music gig instead of ‘one more tune’. The themes of this show include (but are not exclusive to): who is crazy? who is sane?, the slow death of the heart through capitalism, warriors, total environmental destruction, culture in decline, and the universe (all at once).  The show will be organized into an obstacle course and you can record the amount of time it takes you to see all the art. There will be prizes and Lambrini.

Contributors Include: The Golden Trailer Collective, Uma Drragon, Tilly Gifford, Greta Heath, Heshani Sothiraj Eddleston, Sophia Burns, Silas Parry, Matt Green, Artur Van Balen, Martin Robinson, Sharon McBrearty and many many more.
