A collection of eight Talbot Rice Gallery exhibition guides from 2018 to 2022. Past exhibitions include:
Lucy Skaer’s exhibition 'The Green Man' is an exploration and reanimation of the desire to collect. Throughout her practice, Skaer mines and manipulates pre-existing imagery—from art, history, and from her own oeuvre and personal history—transforming and destabilizing relationships between materials and meanings.
Inspired by the tidal wave of change that has been sweeping the world, At the Gates brings together artists whose voices have amplified the global struggle towards female self-empowerment, and in the case of Ireland’s historic fight against the Eighth Amendment, right to bodily self-determination.
Tremble Tremble - Sitting somewhere between sculpture, film and theatre, the artwork evolves each time it is shown, becoming part of its context. The artwork’s new world order is feminist, uncompromising, magical and mythical. Tremble Tremble churns testimony, court statements, song and artefacts into a towering bodily incantation.
Borderlines 23 Feb - 4 May 2019
Borderlines is a group exhibition that gives form to the conceptual, geo-political, economic and cultural impacts of borders.
Trading Zone 2019 25 May - 22 Jun 2019
Trading Zone 2019 reflects the precarious world in which we live. In the midst of the Extinction Rebellion movement and the ongoing turnmoil of Brexit, it shows us the results of fires caused by a plantation approach to forestry, teetering towers of people caught in a hierarchy and life within virtural bunkers.
Samson Young Real Music 24 Jul - 5 Oct 2019
Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh are proud to present the first solo exhibition in the UK by acclaimed Hong Kong artist and composer, Samson Young.
The Extended Mind 2 Nov 2019 - 1 Feb 2020
'The Extended Mind' proposes that our mind – that is our thoughts, reasoning, perception, imagination, intelligence, emotion and experience – is not simply contained within our brains.
Pine's Eye 29 Feb - 14 Nov 2020
Pine’s Eye explores what it means to be human in times of ecological change. Taking its name from 'Pinocchio' (the Italian for ‘pine eye’ or ‘kernel’) it is necessarily tricky and mischievous as it weaves a journey between subjectivities entangled in the natural world.
Angelica Mesiti In the Round 1 Oct 2021 - 5 Mar 2022
Talbot Rice Gallery presents the first major exhibition in the UK of Angelica Mesiti, one of the leading Australian artists of her generation. In the Round builds upon her practice, to take us on a dynamic journey that extends through historical painting, ancient musical notation, geological specimens and musical instruments.
