Art exhibition in store for St James Centre

Have your say

A NEW art exhibition space is to be created within Edinburgh city centre’s largest shopping centre.

Art and science collaboration group Ascus has announced it will launch a new exhibition space in an empty shop unit at the St James Centre this Friday.

The work, on show for one week, will be from a series of art and science collaboration projects and there will also be a programme of lectures, creative workshops, community discussion groups and social gatherings.

Mark Eischeid, of Ascus, said: “With an intellectual history and a cultural infrastructure rich in the arts and sciences, Edinburgh is a uniquely fertile ground for art and science collaborations.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for practitioners and researchers throughout Scotland to share groundbreaking work in an accessible and engaging public space.”
