‘Thirteen’ artists showcase their most recent works created during their artist-in-residence roles at the Edinburgh College of Art & Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design

A-I-R 15/16 are excited to present their inter-disciplinary exhibition showcasing their most recent works from thirteen contemporary emerging artists and designers based in Scotland who have been undergoing an artist-in-residence program since September 2015. This exhibition will showcase a diverse range of artistic approaches within this group of artists: bringing their passion of art & design that is expressed through their creative practices together for this one-off end of residence exhibition.
Each artist has approached the development of their practice over the last year in many different ways. This can be seen through the wide array of visual research, styles of approach and mediums used to communicate their new ideas within their professional area of work in an experimental way. Each artist defines their practice visually through their own methodology of communication through: textiles, illustration, glass, jewellery, fashion, sculpture and furniture.
Throughout this exhibition, the participating artists will also be partaking in a gallery residency, where they will develop and create new works within the exhibition space that will be unveiled every Thursday during August.
