Alt-w: Blush Response

All ages

Travelling Gallery will be visiting Platform on 28 and 29 Novmber with a new exhibition, Alt-w:Blush Response, in partnership with New Media Scotland and part of the Festival of Architecture 2016. The exhibition focuses on artists who make use of technology within their practice, exploring the exciting role that digital interaction can have in our lives.

Travelling Gallery has been bringing contemporary art exhibitions to communities throughout Scotland in the custom-built Travelling Gallery vehicle since 1978.

The exhibition will include intricately made animated paper models by Charles Young, each only a few centimetres high; virtual reality headsets exploring Brutalist Architecture by Dennis and Debbie Club; Torsten Lauschmann collaborating with The Bothy Project and an interactive drawing following the map of Crinan Canal by ~in the fields.

Each newly commissioned artwork will have two relating elements; a smaller work to suit the unique Travelling Gallery space and a larger work to be installed at a specific location in Scotland. During its tour of Scotland, Travelling Gallery will visit the locations of each of the larger works, in Crinan, Dundee and Edinburgh, and due to their proximity, the two
elements of the work will ‘blush’ in response to each other.

The gallery will be open to the public - all welcome and admission is free.

The Travelling Gallery is a ‘not for profit’ organisation, regularly funded by Creative Scotland and supported by City of Edinburgh Council and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
