In the early years of the 19th century, at around the time that our gallery at 6 Carlton Terrace was being built, the English alphabet was considered a system of twenty seven characters, and any schoolroom recitation of ABC’s would end with the 27th letter ‘&’ …and per se and.
Of and by itself and: a connecting symbol, linking one thing with another.
In the spirit of that linkage, and to celebrate the gallery’s 20th year and a return to the building in which we started out, we are presenting an exhibition programme of pairings: a circular sequence that opens in March 2017 and which will end, where it began, one year later.
The sequence begins with The End (what better place to start?) a film made in 2006 by Mark Wallinger. This will be screened to coincide with the Wallinger’s major solo presentations at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh and Dundee Contemporary Arts.
