Présentation du film Soleil Différé de Pascal Grandmaison
EDINBURGH CITY ART CENTER
Where do I end and you begin
Du 1er Août au 19 Octobre 2014
The participating curators are Aaron Kreisler (Dunedin, NZ); Thembinkosi Goniwe (Johannesburg, SA);
Vidya Shivadas (New Delhi, IND); Kathleen Ritter (Vancouver, CA); and Richard Hylton (London, UK).
As part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, and during the year of Homecoming Scotland, Edinburgh Art Festival in partnership with Edinburgh City Art Center presents a major international exhibition of contemporary art selected by five curators from Commonwealth countries. Taking its title from a work by Indian artist, Shilpa Gupta, the exhibition invites perspectives from across the Commonwealth to explore and interrogate the ideas, ideals and myths which underpin notions of community, common-wealth, and the commons.
Through new and recent work by over 20 international artists, Where do I end and you begin considers what it means to join ‘common’ with ‘wealth’, reflecting on the notion of The Commonwealth as a problematic historical and contemporary construct and offering international perspectives on the range of associations which common-wealth evokes, from the challenge of ‘being in common’ in a truly global world, to ideas of the common good, common land, public ownership and alternative exchange systems.
Edinburgh Art Festival is proud to be working with international partners across the Commonwealth on the development of this major enterprise, including the British Council, Creative New Zealand; Dunedin Public Art Gallery; South Africa – United Kingdom Seasons 2014 & 2015; Gallery MOMO, Johannesburg; Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi and other partners in Canada, India, New Zealand and UK.
