To celebrate the Darwin anniversaries in 2009 Talbot Rice Gallery will present two important exhibitions. In the Georgian Gallery, we explore Darwin's time in Edinburgh and his enduring influence on the world as we know it today, while the companion exhibition will showcase five contemporary art projects inspired by Darwinian thought.
An Entangled Bank will show a series of diverse but interrelated works by five invited artists and will be accompanied by an extensive education and events programme. All the artists have significant national and international reputations and work in complex and various media including film, photography, digital projection, sculpture and installation.
The resulting exhibition will present a rich visual spectacle where research and methodologies will be displayed alongside finished work.
