This year, Edinburgh’s City Art Centre hosts a topical and thought-provoking exhibition exploring one of the most divisive topics affecting society today, migration. Another Country – Contemporary Artists on Immigration runs from 1st December 2018 – 17th March 2019.
The exhibition brings together new and existing work from eleven artists from distinct ethnic and culturally diverse backgrounds to tackle issues surrounding contemporary migration, a complex subject with rapidly growing relevance in the current political climate. The work presented by the artists in Another Country is highly personal as most of the artists are migrants themselves.
Referencing the title of James Baldwin’s 1962 novel of the same name, the exhibition highlights the possibility that, for every individual living here, Scotland could become ‘another country’ depending on one’s ethnicity, status and situation.
Immigration is one of the most hotly debated subjects today, and so the City Art Centre is delighted to be displaying a range of artistic responses with Another Country – Contemporary Artists on Immigration.
