“The Miraculous” Installation at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop

4 June – 31 August 2016
Monday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm

An exhibition relocating the works and lives of the following artists, to the spaces of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop:

Bas Jan Ader, Joseph Beuys, Joseph Grigely, David Hammons, Helmut Heissenbüttel, Alison Knowles, John Latham, Lee Lozano, Marta Minujín, Daniel Spoerri, Cindy Sherman and Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

In an unusual text-and-architecture experiment, New York-based poet and critic Raphael Rubinstein will work with designers Maeve Redmond and Sophie Dyer to transpose short narratives from his book The Miraculous into an installation that permeates the spaces of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Episodes, both legendary and obscure, taken from the artistic avant-garde from the last five decades will reside along studio corridors, within communal spaces and on exterior walls, relocating a range of historic and contemporary artworks onsite via the imaginative space of writing.
