The National Gallery is a cultural hub in Edinburgh, slap bang in the middle of the busiest shopping area of Princes Street. At the moment, it is playing host to one part of an exhibition scattered throughout the city which proves that art is far from dead.
Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland is a celebration of Scotland’s best and brightest. A variety of talent, from David Shrigley’s prints to Karla Black’s ethereal polythene sheet sculpture, offers something new with each visit, to each visitor. Turner Prize winner Martin Boyce also features with his installation Our Love is Like the Flowers, the Rain, the Sea and the Hours.
There’s a scant few months left to take it in; and it’s free, so pop in on your way back from a day in the shops and enjoy some culture.
