Scots and Argentine artists to share perspectives

Have your say

ARTISTS and academics from Argentina and Scotland are set to join forces at a seminar in the Capital.

They will discuss “contemporary developments in visual culture” at an event jointly organised by Edinburgh and Stirling universities.

Dr Sarah Wilson from Stirling University, who is chairing the event, said: “We’ll be looking at the relationship of visual art to local communities and broader cultural institutions at a time of uncertainty, debate and change in both countries. The event is aimed at artists, academics and other interested parties and will feature presentations by two speakers – Syd Krochmalny, an artist and sociologist based in Argentina, and Simon Yuill, an artist and media activist based in Glasgow.

The seminar – Visual Cultures in Scotland and Argentina: An Interchange – is open to the public at the Chrystal Macmillan Building, in George Square, on Thursday at 5pm.
