NOTES ON A CHANGING PLACE

 

Mary Slessor Gardens, Dundee

8 September - 3 November 2017

 

Taking the ideas that underpin The Museum of Loss and Renewal as their starting point and using a wide range of historical and personal references Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen produced this series of posters and a publication as part of their contribution to the Sharing Not Hoarding public art project.

 

Sharing Not Hoarding is an experimental public art project in Dundee's Waterfront Development. Using 18 4-sheet billboard posters, the project provides opportunities for artists and the wider public to participate in the Waterfront Development, to raise questions about our collective future, and to celebrate a diversity of voices and visions for the city.

 

Combining drawing, photography and collage techniques Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen's posters offered an idiosyncratic view of Dundee and its continual reinvention. This work of art celebrates Dundee and its inhabitants by questioning preconceived ideas.

 

Notes on a Changing Place: A Gathering

A public event hosted by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in collaboration with MFA Art, Society & Publics students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee.

The McManus, Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum, 31 October 2017.

 

Reflecting Sharing Not Hoarding's and The Museum of Loss and Renewal’s joint ambition to reach a variety of audiences, the posters were used as conversation pieces during a public engagement event at The McManus, Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum that explored the arts’ reflective and critical role against the backdrop of Dundee’s re-imagining.
