Moyna Flannigan / Space Shuffle
Jun 28 – Sep 15, 2024
Edinburgh, Scotland

In our 40th year, Collective is delighted to welcome back renowned Scottish artist, and early committee member Moyna Flannigan to present an exhibition of new work.

Flannigan has become known for her paintings that focus on women. Her inspiration is drawn from myth, art history and pop culture, creating work which interweaves visual memories and experiences.

Since her presentation of Tear at part of NOW (2018–19) at the National Galleries of Scotland (NGS), Flannigan has pursued her investigation into the materials and methods of collage.

Created in response to the unique context and architecture of our City Dome gallery, Space Shuffle will feature figurative collages, alongside a constellation of paper sculptures that extend the principles of collage into three dimensional form and space.

Space Shuffle will run from Friday 28 June – Sunday 15 September 2024, and will also be part of Edinburgh Art Festival (EAF)’s 20th birthday programme, taking place from 9–25 August 2024.

Media partner: The Skinny.

  • Gregory Crewdson: Retrospective
    May 29 – Sep 8, 2024
    Wien, Austria

    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)

  • Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

    Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, all rooted in the social history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this prismatic artist’s book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into reverberant texts and percipient photographic images that tender the city’s invisible histories.

    Participatory Public Action / Andrea Stefanelli
    Chiara Causo

    According to Arnold Gehlen, one of the fathers of Western anthropology, man comes into the world incomplete and imperfect, incapable of surviving in nature due to his multiple limitations. However, over time and with intelligence he learns to survive thanks to a complex system of acquiring knowledge that allows him to bend the supernatural force of the environment to his will, finally making himself the protagonist of his own destiny.

  • Michael Radford: CRASH
    Edition Taube

    In Michael Radford’s first artists’ book, we see shattered supercar bodies – forming a dialogue between consumer accidents and human desire, questioning these objects and their role in enabling petrol masculinity. The seductive high-gloss compositions draw us in, seen through the lens of automotive sexiness and the capitalist ideological machine, cannoned by the image. (more…)
