Old gods never really die; they only wait to be awoken in a new time..

Rhiannon Rebecca Salisbury and Arusha Gallery have called upon eighteen selected artists to invoke, channel and create an ancient deity, which will be presented in a new group exhibition, Ancient Deities, at Arusha Gallery, from 10th September – 18th October 2020.

Presented physically in our Edinburgh gallery, and online via a curated viewing room, Ancient Deities seeks to reawaken a host of awe inspiring and mystical entities, bringing them back to the forefront of people’s minds. Gods and demons are omnipresent in our consciousness, deeply rooted in various mythologies, reinterpreted in mainstream media, films and TV programs abound with reincarnations of the old gods. The show explores what happens when we bring together a melting pot of artistic responses, assisting in this unpredicted time to help channel a reimagining of a world, reawakening the past, responding to the present, and reconceptualising the future.
