ATLAS Arts

About

ABOUT:
Based in Skye and Lochalsh, ATLAS was founded in 2010 with the aim of generating and presenting innovative and ambitious contemporary arts projects. An organisation “without walls,” we work with artists, curators, writers and the public to create work in response to a specific location or situation. We aim to inspire community interest in contemporary art by delivering a varied programme that is of local, national and international significance.

CURRENT PROJECT:
Are you LOCATIONALIZED is a new work by Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan sited across the two Hebridean islands of Skye and North Uist. The artists were invited by ATLAS Arts to make new work for GENERATION that, in common with their other works, engaged not just with the location it would be shown within, but also with the context of its commission.

The work combines photography, sculpture, text and audio to make a composite piece that challenges a viewer to make sense of it as a whole. Together these elements combine to create Are you LOCATIONALIZED, a work that engages with ideas of place, localness and cultural identity and then considers how art is expected to negotiate or represent such ideas.

Are you LOCATIONALIZED runs until 30 September 2014
Check atlasarts.org.uk and taigh-chearsabhagh.org for more information about upcoming talks and events.

Generation: 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland is a major, nationwide exhibition programme showcasing some of the best and most significant artists to have emerged from Scotland over the last 25 years.
