Artists Call for Submissions: Scottish Identity (Post Brexit)

 

Scottish Identity

Peter J Scott, No Man’s Land, 2015, (Poppy series), mixed media drawing over print collageMarch 31 – April 20, 2017

23 Atholl Crescent
Edinburgh, EH3 8HQ

“Where is the coward that would not dare to fight for such a land as Scotland,” Sir Walter Scott asked in the 18th Century. Yet, what does it mean to be Scottish in 2017? Does one have to be born in Scotland to feel Scottish? In a particularly tense period following Brexit, the possibility of another independence referendum, and aftershocks from the United States election, Scottish Identity asks artists to examine their own views of Scotland and her people. We welcome artists of any background to explore their own associations in the aim of presenting a body of work that exposes the nuanced dimensions of this unique country. Works may directly engage with social issues, but they can also address themes such as the natural landscape, historic traditions, personal experience, notions of ancestry, patriotism and politics.

Call for Submissions | ROBERT BURNS EXHIBITION

Portrait of Robert Burns (1759-1796), Scottish poet and composer, Engraving

TOAST TO THE LASSIES: ROBERT BURNS & THE ROLE OF WOMEN
(Model as Body // Muse as Object)

January 20 – February 10

Gallery 23
23 Atholl Crescent
Edinburgh, EH3 8HQ
Tel. (0131) 229 1528

‘Toast to the Lassies’ invites artists to examine the relationship between artist and muse, and submit works that engage a gendered response for our exhibition celebrating Scotland’s most famous poet. Burns has a complex and sometimes contentious relationship with women, seeing them both as figures of inspiration and as objects of desire. Avidly promiscuous in his relationships, it was not purely a physical pleasure for him. Moreover, Burns’ poetry reveals a man who genuinely adored women and wrote some of the most famous declarations of love ever immortalised in the English language. Addressing notions of femininity, masculinity, and the power struggle between artist, viewer, and subject, this exhibition will be coupled with a catalogue. Additionally, select works will be on view at a Burns Night evening programme at The Royal Scots Club.

We welcome submissions in any medium, and are accepting both emerging and established artists.
