⚪ The architecture of '"U Scantu": A Disorderly Tale' ⚪

From Gibellina Nuova, a planned postmodern utopian city near Trapani, to the ballroom and private apartments of Palazzo Biscari, a Baroque and Rococo palace in Catania, the varied architecture of Sicily plays a significant role in "U Scantu".

In "U Scantu"'s exhibition at Collective, the curve of Gibellina Nuova's extraordinary cathedral is echoed in the curve of our City Dome.

Read more in Barbara Casavecchia and Elisa Giardina Papa's 'In Conversation' piece, available on the "U Scantu" exhibition page on our website.

🎨 Friday Play: Summer term

Friday Play starts back again next week, Friday 19th April, 1:30 – 4pm.

Friday Play is a weekly loose-parts play session on Friday afternoons during term-time, led by our wonderful Play Lead Artist, Frieda Ford. From messy play and crafts to gardening and cooking, there’s always something different to do during these child-led play sessions.

🚀 Exhibition announcement: Moyna Flannigan | 'Space Shuffle'

In our 40th year, we are delighted to welcome back Moyna Flannigan – renowned Scottish artist and early committee member of Collective.

'Space Shuffle' has been created in response to the unique context and architecture of our City Dome gallery, and will feature figurative collages, alongside a constellation of paper sculptures that extend the principles of collage into three dimensional form and space.

'Space Shuffle' will run from Friday 28 June – Sunday 15 September 2024, and will also be part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2024 (taking place from 9 – 25 August 2024).

We are thrilled to announce our first exhibition of the year, '"U Scantu": A Disorderly Tale' by Elisa Giardina Papa.

First exhibited at the 2022 Venice Biennale, 'U Scantu' brings together ceramic sculptures and a large-scale video installation to explore the Sicilian myth of the ‘donne di fora' - ‘women from the outside and beside themselves’. Considered to be at once heretical and magical healers, the ‘donne di fora’ defied simple categorization, believed to embody a range of opposing qualities – feminine and masculine; human and animal; benevolent and vengeful...

🎈Happy Birthday, Collective! 🎉

Today marks five years since Collective opened on Calton Hill.

Our unique site has provided a depth of inspiration for our programme of exhibitions, events, workshops, and play – as well as a stunning backdrop for Observatory House, our shop and our friends at the Union of Genius kiosk and The Lookout.

It has been a privilege for us to share the work of so many incredible Scottish and international artists – thank you to everyone who has worked and engaged with us.

"In short, addicts do not respond and conform to the controlling gazes on them whether they emanate from the state or from their communities more generally. Instead, we look outward, off-screen, to a new world. One which makes space for unconditional support for active addiction’s chaos and urgency."

We're excited to share 'Addict Livingness', a new essay by Waithera Sebatindira, written in response to Thomas Abercromby’s ‘John’.

🪐 Meet the 2024-25 Satellites Participants! 🪐

We're excited to tell you more about the 2024-25 Satellites cohort over the coming weeks, beginning with Clarinda Tse!

Clarinda Tse is an interdisciplinary performance maker, bodyworker and facilitator – Hong Kong born and Glasgow-based.

Their work explores emergent compositions of material ecologies and bodies as agency for worlding. Their habitat is sensual, slippery, more-than-human, transitional, drawn from everyday experience, multiplicities of selves, play and cellular reconciliation. Recent works are supported by Take Me Somewhere (2023), Tramway (2023), and BUZZCUT Double Thrills (2022).
