From Death to Death and Other Small Tales

15.12.2012 - 08.09.2013

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh

Curated by Keith Hartley, Chief Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

“This exhibition brings together two different, and very distinctive, collections. Just as a collection assumes an identity greater than the sum of its constituent parts, so the exhibition, by bringing together these collections, reveals powerful new readings of both the collections and the works within them”.

Dr. Simon Groom, Director of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

“Against the backdrop of social, philosophical and political upheaval, artists have redirected their gaze from the aesthetic qualities and physical attributes of the human body and have sought instead to explore questions of self”.

Lucy Askew, Senior Curator of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
