The new Friends’ Programme will host curators, conservators and other specialists, providing an insight in to the collections at Hospitalfield and how they compare to other public collections held nationally
Savings on ticket prices where this applies
These events provide an insight in to the collections held here and, in some cases, provide access to material and objects that are not currently on public view. The events also offer opportunities to learn more about events
The programme has been devised to give those who are closest to us a far greater knowledge of the collections, the context in which they sit in terms of the ‘national collection’ and an idea of how we must plan for the future.
Over this year and as we devise the 2014 programme, we will bring some of the most expert curators and specialist conservators to Hospitalfield to speak to us.
Graham Fagen will talk about his work at this event in advance of the exhibition of his work at the Venice Biennale
Free for Friends of Hospitalfield & for students
£5 for all others
Hospitalfield will present an exhibition of new work by Graham Fagen as Scotland’s contribution to the Venice Biennale in May this year, at the exquisite Palazzo Fontana overlooking the Grand Canal. The Venice Biennale is the world’s most prestigious contemporary art event and we could not be more delighted to have been invited by the Scotland + Venice partnership to curate this exhibition.
This is an opportunity for our closest audiences to meet Graham and to hear him talk about his work and his approach to making the new exhibition for Venice.
