Our Rural Riddle

Our solo show currently on in Scotland gets a mention in this great article on the Highland Institute of Contemporary Art (HICA) in this weeks Review section of Scotland on Sunday.  The little feature is written by Moira Jeffrey and gives a bit of useful context on how the space is run and what shows have been on there and what's coming up!  Click on the image below to see it larger, zoomable and legible.

Artists Lottery Syndicate

We've joined the artists lottery syndicate, launched last night in London. It's a forty-strong collective of UK based artists who are joining forces to play The National Lottery over the course of a year, with the hope of hitting the jackpot. 

Described by organising artist Ellie Harrison as, 'a reaction to the recession and its knock-on effect on arts funding, the Artists' Lottery Syndicate is a speculative new scheme for acquiring funds for artists. By utilising the element of 'luck', which plays such a central role in an artist's career, the Syndicate aims to explore the prevalent 'winner-takes-all' market of the arts, described by Hans Abbing in his book Why Are Artists Poor?'
