GENERATION AFTER GENERATION is the result of a nine month project undertaken by the Pier Arts Centre’s Piergroup to engage with the Glasgow 2014 cultural programme GENERATION – 25 years of Scottish contemporary art.
The many strands of the project includes artwork, documentation, reflection and 290 Miles North – work made by members of Fresh Fruit, the young person’s forum from the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh in response to a short residency they undertook with Piergroup in Orkney at the end of March.
The project culminated in a research visit to Glasgow and Edinburgh to see the work of many of the artists whose work Piergroup is familiar with through the Centre’s collection and exhibitions programme in the context of their peers and in the wider arena of Scottish contemporary visual art.
GENERATION AFTER GENERATION has been supported by Creative Scotland GENERATION Public Engagement Fund and OIC Orkney Arts Education Network. 290 Miles North is supported by Cairn PLC.
