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 & Grounds.
From 11th September 2017 until August 2018
Ally Wallace worked as Artist-in-residence at the University of Stirling’s Pathfoot Building 2016-2017 on a self-initiated project funded by Creative Scotland. He made work focused on Pathfoot’s modernist architecture in relation to the art collection housed in it, the surrounding landscape and the people who use the building.
