Cabinet Interventions

Exhibition

A collaboration between ten artists and the National Trust for Scotland, Cabinet Interventions interrogates the role of material culture in defining place. In post-Brexit Scotland, how might often-contested identities and histories be articulated through institutions such as the Trust?

In 2017 the artists spent time in residence at Pollok House, exploring the cultural, political, historical, ecological and sensorial context of the site. This exhibition draws upon that research and dialogue to present sound, film, sculpture, text and performance.

Supported by The Royal Society of Edinburgh and Glasgow School of Art.
