Under Threat: Change of Plan

9:00 -17:00, Monday-Friday

Each year, the Art Collection’s exhibitions, events and workshops are directly inspired by the research of the University. This year the focus is on environment, and with the umbrella title ‘Under Threat’ we highlight a variety of pressing issues.

We are pleased to present a series of outdoor sculptural installations by Stirling’s GOSSIP Collective inspired by our environmental theme.

The seven artists involved have all responded to the project in distinctive ways. The title of the exhibition Change of Plan is a comment on, not only the current situation we find ourselves in but also the need for a more considered response to the natural environment. The impact that humans have on the world and what it can trigger is conveyed throughout the artworks. Beauty and fragility, natural forms, decay, destruction and recovery and the passage of time are all focused upon. Recycled materials, aluminium, glass, willow, stone and textiles are featured throughout.

Artists: David Barbara, Ken Elliott, Alice Martin, Valerie Martin, Lesley McDermott, Dawn McLaren and Audrey McMenemy.
