- GENERATION: 25 Years of contemporary art in scotland

July 2014

 

Generation 25 is the nationwide programme of exhibitions and events celebrating the last 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland. 

We were asked to create illustrations reflecting the exhibitions/artists and events of the last 25 years in the form of a timeline. This was to sprawl across the two iconic balconies of the gallery for the public to engage in.

Inspired by the curved balcony walls we created 25 individual montages of illustration sealed within an oval, reflecting the balconies interior. Each oval represented a year where it's major art and wordily events were illustrated in a whimsical and humorous way - from Marin Creed's 'Foot in Mouth' to a flock of Dolly the Sheep.
