Over the Counter Culture

Abstract / Description of output

Curated by Deborah Jackson

A group exhibition which brings together 8 contemporary Scottish artists to explore Scottish identity and culture during the referendum period. Featuring work by John Ayscough, Rabiya Choudhry, Rachel Maclean, Stuart Murray, Ortonandon, and Ross Sinclair.
This exhibition reflects on the constructions, definitions and meanings of contemporary Scottish Identity. Conceived of from the vantage point of post-Devolution and looking towards the 2014 Scottish Referendum on Independence this exhibition considers the nebulous concept of Scottishness. 'Over the Counter-Culture' shows the work of artists whose work challenges the creation of myths, history and heritage as they reveal the complex layers of national identity which make up modern Scotland.

This exhibition extends the parameters of the exhibition form to incorporate more discursive, conversational and geo-political discussion, centred within the domain of the exhibition.
