SAVAGE EXUBERANCE, APPALLING FUN

Submitted by Editor on Tue, 12/10/2021 - 19:51

Christopher Spencer’s exhibition at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall has been extended till Thursday – sustained, it seems, by an inexhaustible font of outrage.

You, Me & Cold War Steve (The International Exhibition of the People) brings together three years’ scorn (2019–21) in the form of 50 artfully manipulated photomontages.

Spencer’s style draws on Hieronymus Bosch’s eye for infernal detail, and the exuberant savagery of Hogarth and Gillivray.

Inverleith House in the Botanic Gardens has secured funding to deliver a three-year programme of multidisciplinary engagement between artists and ecology scientists.

In partnership with the Serpentine Galleries in London, the gallery will be called Climate House, and offer a transformative, transdisciplinary space ‘welcoming the broadest possible audience to challenge the Climate Crisis’.
