The Art Collection is celebrating the University's 50th anniversary by focusing on the cultural impact of 1967, the year it opened its doors to students for the first time. A series of events and exhibitions are being planned for Pathfoot - itself an iconic building of the era - in conjunction with Macrobert and Gardens and Grounds.
From 11th September 2017 until August 2018
A multi media exhibition of art, photography, video and audio installations, this powerful and hard hitting exhibition is the result of an initiative undertaken by the Encompass Network involving women working inside the sex industry and it provides a rare insight into their hidden world. The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Art Collection and the Centre for Gender Studies. This project includes outreach work with women at Cornton Vale which will be exhibited in the Pathfoot Building from April onwards.
*Please note that some of the content deals with sexual violence, abuse and exploitation which some might find upsetting*
