We're delighted that 2 of the ceremonial masks created by Alan Hunt for our 'Pine's Eye' exhibition have been acquired by National Museums Scotland.

The exhibition was sadly cut short in 2020 by the pandemic, but the conversations had and connections made around it continue to impact and live on.

You can watch the full Atlakim Ceremony performance at St Cecilia's Hall: Concert Room & Music Museum here: https://youtu.be/0cvKnrjYV3o

Did you know that you can experience the musical translation of a queen bee’s ‘piping’ song here at #TalbotRice? 🐝

‘The Swarming Song’ (four-channel installation) by #AngelicaMesiti was made in response to Charles Butler’s musical composition ‘Bee’s madrigal’, which was written in the 17th century. He wrote this musical composition after his observations around the ‘piping’ queen bees make in the beehive.

Angelica’s installation performs this composition into an enchanting chorus that plays in our gallery. Come and experience this for the first time ever in ‘In the Round’!

Admission free

Angelica Mesiti | In the Round
until 19 February 2022
Talbot Rice Gallery

Talbot Rice Gallery presents the first major exhibition in the UK of Angelica Mesiti, one of the leading Australian artists of her generation.

'In the Round' builds upon her practice, to take us on a dynamic journey that extends through historical painting, ancient musical notation, geological specimens and musical instruments. Mesiti consistently returns to communication and translation in her sound, performance and video installations, reflecting the struggle of communities to co-exist. Through her selection of the University’s collections, she has delved into nature and deep time, as well as ideas of cycles, resonances and rotation. Taking this unique opportunity to combine present concerns with historical research, Mesiti allows her artworks to echo through ancient objects and to materialise in new works made for this expansive exhibition.

Many thanks to everyone that visited 'The Normal' and Emeka Ogboh's 'Song of the Union' over the past months. We're now underway preparing our next exhibition 'Angelica Mesiti | In the Round', opening 1 October.

Angelica Mesiti (b.1976, Sydney), is one of the leading Australian artists of her generation. Her body of work is characterised by scientific reflection and historical research and, formally, incorporates aspects of music, dance and performance. The exhibition will be the most in-depth exploration of Mesiti’s practice yet held in the UK.

More details will be available very soon - stay tuned!
