Welcome to Spin’s new website! Here you can find out details about our contemporary art members’ group which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
Set up by the Education Department at the National Galleries of Scotland, our first event was in January 2003 in which we explored the work of Duane Hanson with artist, Kenny Hunter. Since then we have gone on to discover and discuss hundreds of artworks and artists with the help of curators, gallery directors, artists and critics across Edinburgh and beyond. Just take a look at the Events section of the site which details all our visits over the past 10 years!
We have also visited art biennials including Venice in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011 and are planning a trip for October 2013. We have also taken our group to Berlin in 2010 and three visits to the Liverpool Biennial in 2006, 2008 and 2012.
We will be regularly up-dating this blog with comments about the art scene in Scotland today as well as posts from our Spin members.
