Spring Fling is the annual open studios event taking place across

DIARY
15 March – 3 May Gallery 2
Sparkle and Spin: by Paola McClure
Dundee based artist Paola McClure is well known for her strange
alien-like creatures, handmade from vintage fabrics and secondhand clothing. She is interested in fabrics, pattern and colour, and
her influences range from the primitive to the kitsch.
Although some of the work may have a dark edge, it is
impossible to escape the sense of fun, and the joy of making,
which is in evidence throughout her work.
Taking its name from a popular children’s book by Ann and
Paul Rand, Sparkle and Spin features new ‘soft sculpture’
characters and large-scale installation pieces in an
exhibition that includes plenty to enthral and inspire
visitors, young and old alike.

THE MAKING OF US
Robert Burns Centre
Film Theatre
10 May – 5 July Gallery 1 & 2
South by South West 25
The exhibition is presented as part of ‘GENERATION’ – a national
project reflecting 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland to
celebrate the Commonwealth Games cultural programme in 2014.
Curated in collaboration with the South by South West partner
venues; Dick Institute, Kilmarnock and Rozelle Galleries, Ayr, the
selected artists are: Graham Fagen, Christine Borland and Dalziel &
Scullion. All three artists will be represented at each venue during
the exhibition programme this summer. At Gracefield the exhibition
reflects an interest in the natural environment, and explores themes
as diverse as botanical plant archives, art in the land and cultural
identity. The artists have individually worked closely with each venue
and the exhibitions will include major works from their archives.
GENERATION is being delivered through a partnership between the
National Galleries of Scotland and Glasgow Life, and is supported
by Creative Scotland. The programme aims to shine a spotlight on
the past 25 years - a period which has seen Scotland develop an
international reputation as a distinguished centre for contemporary
art, produce a disproportionate amount of award-winning artists,
host a number of ground-breaking exhibitions and foster an
infrastructure which has helped allow contemporary art to flourish.

Wolf, 2012 (film still)
Also in Gallery 1, see a selection of works from the Gracefield
Permanent Collection reflecting the last 25 years in Scottish Fine Art.

12 July – 9 August Gallery2
Denise Zygadlo
Wrap
Our emotional response to cloth, our second skin, is explored in
‘Wrap’. The intimacy of a photocopied image, where the subject
matter is pressed against the glass, capturing the raw detail of
skin and fabric, is the focus of Denise Zygadlo’s work – “We are
surrounded by cloth from the moment we are born. We make
choices about its qualities; texture weight, colour, smell for the
countless ways we employ cloth in our everyday lives.”
The central focus of ‘Wrap’ is an installation of life-size wrapped
figures on silk hangings incorporating video footage in collaboration
with filmmaker John Wallace. In contrast to the hangings, large scale
charcoal drawings and works on canvas are mounted on the walls.
The opening on Saturday 12 July (1pm & 2pm) will present a new
collaborative performance by the artist with Florencia Garcia
Chafuen and Tara Hodgson accompanied by a string quartet to
music composed by Rudi Zygadlo.
ALBA | CHRUTHACHAIL
Tickets £4 available in advance from Gracefield , or last minute
on the door if space permitting. 1pm, first performance, duration:
15-mins , 2pm. second performance. Access to the gallery will be
unavailable during the performance and visitors will be directed in
and out of the gallery from the side door.
In addition to the exhibition, Denise will be
investigating personal cloth related memories. You are
invited to share reflections of significant associations
you have with cloth and bring your stories, photos
or objects to create a display for the duration of the
show. There will be opportunities to join informal
group discussion about ‘Wrap’ with Denise in the
gallery. For further information please contact
Gracefield Arts Centre.

Gallery 1 (lower floor) & Gallery 2
Dan Flavin
ARTIST ROOMS
Sculptor Dan Flavin (1933–1996) was born in New York City. He lived and worked in New York
City and Long Island, NY and was one of the main artists associated with Minimalism. Alongside
a major new ARTIST ROOMS work “untitled (to Don Judd, colorist) 1‑5” 1987, Gracefield is also
presenting works on loan from the Tate and the National Gallery of Scotland collections.
These are some of the most iconic works of Minimalism and show the key aspects of Flavin’s
practice: his decision to restrict his materials to commercially available fluorescent tubes in
different sizes, his dedication to working in series and to a serial arrangements of tubes, and
finally his interest in dedicating his works through their titles to other artists.
The sculpture installations will transform the Gracefield gallery spaces and offer audiences the
first chance to engage with this challenging and fascinating body of work, some of which has
never been seen in Scotland before. To explore the art and the ideas a range of gallery talks and
activities will accompany the exhibition – the full programme for public and schools and will be
available in late June.
