This thematic exhibition, curated by Bill Hare and Andrew Patrizio of
The University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with Dovecot, provides a
radically new and fascinating presentation of the shared concerns which
have obsessed many of the most important Scottish artists since the end
of World War Two. The Scottish Endarkenment explores a wide range of
disturbing and provocative topics, from ever-escalating international
conflict, social inequality and unrest, gender identity and sexual
prejudice – all fired by the dialectical struggles within the Scottish
psyche between good and evil, Self and the Other. All these subjects are
imaginatively treated within a variety of different interpretations and
mediums – from the out-and-out horrific to the darkly satirical.
Included amongst the forty or so exhibits are works by major Scottish
artists including David Shrigley, Joyce Cairns and Steven Campbell.
Full list of artists: Beagles & Ramsay, John Bellany, Christine Borland, Joyce Cairns Steven Campbell, Robert Colquhoun, Fred Crayk, Ken Currie Alan Davie, Kenneth Dingwall, Pat Douthwaite, Joan Eardley Graham Fagen, Boyle Family, Helen Flockhart, Luke Fowler Douglas Gordon,, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Lys Hansen, Kevin Harman Louise Hopkins, Georgia Horgan, Kenny Hunter, Matthew Inglis William Johnstone, John Kirkwood, Shona Macnaughton Chad McCail, Jock McFadyen, Wendy McMurdo, Jonathan Owen Eduardo Paolozzi, Katie Paterson, Julie Roberts, David Shrigley Simon Starling, Kerry Stewart, Peter Thomson, William Turnbull Alison Watt, Richard Wright

Culte Cargo is a 3-day project and exhibition of works by MFA graduates Conor Kelly and Kari Stewart. The works are products and
by-products of individual and collaborative enquiries. Threading the
project together is an adherence to pursuing failures of protocol,
measuring coincidence against the whittling of meaning.

is a multi-genre event which unites new music with new art. With six
world premieres for ensemble created jointly with six new works of live
art, this unique event will take place in the relaxed setting of
Glasgowʼs iconic School of Art.
Curated and produced by co-artistic directors, conductor Jessica Cottis
and composer Richard Greer, this collaborative project examines the
limits of what we might normally consider ʻmusicʼ or ʻartʼ and explores
the intersections between.
Each composer/artist pair have collaborated to create extraordinary
works with topics as varied as nuclear submarines, the Kelvin Way,
distant dying stars, talking to crows, and digestion are explored
through simultaneous LIVE art and music.
Featuring artists Julian Tolhurst, Chloe Reid, Rhona Muhlebach, Olga
Kaliszer, Jennifer Mason and James Dixon, composers Jay Capperauld, Euan
Ferguson, Richard Greer, Beki Smith, Matt Zurowski and Claire McCue,
