NOTES ON A CHANGING PLACE

 

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 & Edwin have produced this series of posters 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 & Edwin's posters offer an idiosyncratic view of Dundee and its continual reinvention. This work of art celebrates Dundee and its inhabitants by questioning preconceived ideas.

 

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