Here Was Elsewhere: FFWD, previously shown at one of the largest contemporary art museums in China today, the Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum—as part of Cooper Gallery’s International Project CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland (Phase Two)—returns for a presentation in Scotland, reconfigured in response to the unique architectural features of Cooper Gallery’s two floor exhibition space.
The exhibition of 27 artist moving image works made by 24 leading and up-and-coming artists, is staged in weekly rotations of selected works that capture the distinctive concerns driving contemporary artists’ moving image works made in Scotland. Each week’s programme illuminates work by artists grouped around four concerns; the body, history, time and narrative.
The selection of works in the exhibition is supported by Modern Edinburgh Film School.
