MUD∞

18th April to 3rd May 2015, Thurs to Sun, 12-6pm.
Embassy, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh EH1 3LY

MUD∞ engages a digital neo-medievalist application of materials, drawing on a ritualistic treatment of the art object as relic, or sentient person-object, to explore the contemporary political economy of the image as value-form and an index of social status.

Beauty By Design

15th Nov 2014 to 3rd May 2015, Daily 10am-5pm.
Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh EH2 1JD

This exhibition questions cultural commonplaces about beauty and body image by linking the renaissance art collections of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scottish National Gallery to contemporary fashion.

Fashion designers and stylists, Mal Burkinshaw, Claire Ferguson and Sally-Ann Provan with Anne Chaisty, Philip Clarke and Sharon Lloyd will display their work alongside paintings by Paris Bordon & Adam de Colone.

Beauty by Design is a result of a partnership collaboration between Edinburgh College of Art and New Media Scotland. It also enjoys the support of Sophie Hallette Lace and All Walks Beyond the Catwalk.
