Fruitmarket Gallery


The Fruitmarket Gallery, a contemporary art space in the heart of Edinburgh, has presented solo exhibitions of works by such figures as Louise Bourgeois, Gabriel Orozco, Dieter Roth, Roman Signer, Aernout Mik and Cai Guo-Qiang, as well as many thematic group shows featuring works by both established and emerging artists.


The 2014 exhibition "Jim Lambie" featured sculptural works and installations by the well-known Scottish artist (b. 1964), and focused on "The Poetry Club," an installation in the form of a fully-functioning "word-and-music" venue. (Worldwide 81068)


The 1950s and 60s were a period of intense experimentation for Brazilian artists. In an exhibition titled "Possibilities of the Object: Experiments in Modern and Contemporary Brazilian Art," works by such figures as Helio Oiticica, Cildo Meireles, Lygia Clark and Ernesto Neto were shown along with pieces by lesser-known contemporaries and a younger generation of artists, illustrating their attempts to expand and redefine what an art object can be. (Worldwide 81022)

A performance at the Fruitmarket Gallery in the summer of 2014 of Helen Lawrence, an innovative play/film by Canadian artist Stan Douglas (b. 1960) preceded a monographic exhibition of the artist's work later that year. The show featured two additional films, several recent photographs and inkjet prints from the Corrupt File series. (Worldwide 81080)


An upcoming exhibition titled "Another Minimalism: Art after California Light and Space" (November, 2015, through February, 2016) will bring together works by a group of international artists inspired by the California Light and Space artists of the 1960s and 70s. The show will examine the ways in which the work of such artists as Robert Irwin, Larry Bell and James Turrell has influenced the work of younger artists, among them Tacita Dean, Olafur Eliasson and Jeppe Hein.
