With only a week remaining of our current exhibition, Boys and Pastel, by Swiss artist Nicolas Party, we are very much looking forward to our next exhibition by the great American artist, John Chamberlain.
This will be the very first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by Chamberlain, and we are delighted that the show, running from 25th July – 4th October, will form part of the annual Edinburgh Art Festival.
John Chamberlain, who’s influential career as a sculptor spanned six decades, is best known for creating vibrantly coloured, dynamic metal sculptures made from salvaged materials and car parts, and for this presentation at Inverleith House, key works from his early and mid-career will be featured.
Not only will Chamberlain’s works be displayed in the light-filled rooms of Inverleith House Gallery, the exhibition will also extend into the grounds of the Botanic Garden with several of his later sculptures, which were created from twisted metal foil. Seen in the context of a garden, the exhibition accentuates the physicality of his work, its affinity with the human form and its surprisingly natural, organic qualities.
We hope you can join us on 24th July for the exhibition preview, 6 – 8pm, and for the first opportunity to view Chamberlain’s work in this unique environment!
