How to convey someone’s identity has been explored by artists through many different materials. This exhibition brings together a range of unusual contemporary approaches, some using photography as a start or end point. Science and art come together to surprise us and reveal new viewpoints.
The participating artists are Ackroyd & Harvey, Leah Black, Calum Colvin, Zoe Irvine, David Mach, Lindsay Perth, Clara Ursitti.
Portraits + will run at the same time in Kirkcaldy Galleries as an Artist Rooms’ exhibition on the work of American photographer, Diane Arbus. Complementary activities will be organised for both shows.
FCA&C’s Diana Sykes talks briefly about Portraits + in a short film by Craig Watt which can also be seen on Summerhall TV.
