I still believe in miracles will feature the work of 30 leading Scottish and International artists who have made solo exhibitions for Inverleith House over the past 30 years.
I still believe in miracles celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of the world renowned and influential exhibitions programme at Inverleith House, which has featured some of the most memorable exhibitions ever staged in the UK. I still believe in miracles features major works by leading artists based in Scotland and abroad who have all made highly acclaimed solo exhibitions for the gallery over its thirty year history. The exhibition takes its title from a text work created by Douglas Gordon which has been on permanent display in the gallery since 2005.
New and existing works by artists ranging from Louise Bourgeois and Isa Genzken to Nicolas Party and Richard Wright will be on display, and a wall drawing created by the late American artist Robert Ryman in 2006 will be uncovered for viewing once again. Contemporary works will be accompanied by archival drawings from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and the Linnaean Society of London. This exhibition embodies Inverleith House’s three decade long engagement with both contemporary art and botany, acknowledging the continuing importance of both artistic and scientific research in our understanding of the natural world.
