Join us for the opening of our new exhibition. All welcome.


To coincide with the Wilderness exhibition, we are delighted to present a seleciton of works by acclaimed Lativan-American artist Vija Celmins (b.1938) drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection. Celmins's densely layered drawings and prints engage with the natural world; the surface of the ocean, expanses of desert, a spider's web or star-filled night sky. Her images prompt questions around representation, perception and human experience and remind us of the complexity of the simplest things we observe in nature.

The ARTIST ROOMS touring programme is delivered by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate in partnership with Ferens Art Gallery until 2019, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by Art Fund and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
