    Here Was Elsewhere:

    A Memorandum of a Summer in Shanghai

    Wednesday 13 April, 6.00-8.30pm


    Following the successful realisation of Phase One of Cooper Gallery’s major international project CURRENT | 不合时宜: Contemporary Art from Scotland in Shanghai in summer 2015, Cooper Gallery and the British Council are delighted to announce the forum Here Was Elsewhere: A Memorandum of a Summer in Shanghai.


    Taking place on the evening of the 13th April at Cooper Gallery in Dundee, the forum will feature artists Poster Club, Anne-Marie Copestake, Edgar Schmitz, Ross Sinclair and Corin Sworn who are involved in the CURRENT | 不合时宜programme and specially invited speakers from both China and UK including JJ Charlesworth (art critic and publisher of Art Review), Wang Nanming (independent curator and critic) and Weng Yunpeng (Director, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai). Chairing the forum will be Professor Chris Breward (Principal, Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh).


    Curated by Cooper Gallery in collaboration with curators and art organisations in China and organised in partnership with the British Council, CURRENT | 不合时宜 is a two-year four-phase contemporary art exhibition and forum programme. Building on the international interest in GENERATION, one of the most ambitious programmes of contemporary art to have taken place in Scotland, CURRENT | 不合时宜 showcases for the first time in China the distinctiveness of contemporary art made in Scotland, its grass-roots spirit and its keen debates with the social and political dimensions of art and culture.
