Re:new - Contemporary Art from the Permanent Collection

About

A number of pieces selected from Dundee Art Galleries and Museums most recent art acquisitions will be on display at The McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum from August 2013, in a temporary exhibition that offers opportunities to engage with a selection of contemporary work from both Scottish and European artists. Re:new will be split up into two distinct groups, the first of which comprises of a series of unusual visual perspectives of Dundee. This collection spans from the monumental response to Dundee's Tay Rail Bridge by Catherine Yass, to a collection of Ruth Ewan's striking slogans, including the piece Nae Sums which is cut from reclaimed Dundee school desks. These works are part of a permanent legacy of artworks originally commissioned by Dundee Contemporary Arts. The second group will focus on works loosely inspired by the natural world. This collection will alternate between the meaningful sculptures of Graham Fagen's hybrid tea rose to the surreal vision of John Stezaker's Bird Mask II and the ethereal shadows of Massimo Bartolini's work that embraces the garden landscape. This group of works has been acquired primarily through the National Collecting Scheme for Scotland.
