Scottish multidisciplinary artist Alberta Whittle brings a range of works from the Venice Biennale back to Scotland in a roaring call for collective care.
Known for her bold, topical art, Alberta Whittle addresses the lasting effects of colonialism, the transatlantic slave trade and the climate crisis through works in sculpture, digital collage, painting and film. Two works at the heart of the exhibition are coming back to Scotland following the Venice Biennale – the striking tapestry work, Entanglement is more than blood and Lagareh – The Last Born, a film installation.
These will sit alongside a number of new works in a vast range of mediums and many of which have never been exhibited before. Peppered with sentimental stories of family and belonging, the works on display are deeply symbolic, both challenging Scotland’s involvement in the structure of white supremacy and calling for a collective approach to championing love over hate.
This exhibition was supported by Art Fund.
