Castle Mills Contemporary showcases work by some of the UK’s most vibrant contemporary artists. All prints on display were created at the Edinburgh Printmakers studio during or just before the pandemic hit, and this exhibition will be the first opportunity to view these exciting new works in person.
Highlights include three prints for the Scottish School Prints series by Hardeep Pandhal, Hanna Tuulikki and Mohammad Barrangi. These artists worked alongside teachers to support the art curriculum and create original prints to be gifted to the schools as part of a digital engagement project. Pandhal and Tuulikki are due to be featured in British Art Show 9 beginning its UK tour this summer and widely acknowledged as the most important recurrent exhibition of contemporary art produced in Britain.
Our featured artists are at the cutting edge of current artistic practice and the exhibition also includes a number of recipients of the Edinburgh Printmakers Publishing Award: Wendy McMurdo (RSA Annual 2020), Jenny Pope (SSA Annual 2019), Zuzana Ullmannová (RSA New Contemporaries 2020) and Maya Hollis (RSA New Contemporaries 2019).
