British Art Show 9 explores three overarching themes – healing, care and reparative history; tactics for togetherness; and imagining new futures. Each of the four exhibitions will also adapt to local contexts. In Aberdeen the exhibition focuses on the effort to develop alternative systems for ethical cohabitation in the world.

Aberdeen

10 Jul – 10 Oct 2021

 

Aberdeen’s presentation centres on exploring different forms of knowledge – including spirituality – to heal the earth, to resist the injustices of extractivism, and to develop  non-exploitative ways of living with the non-human. Aberdeen, known as the ‘Granite City’ due to its status as the UK’s biggest supplier of granite, is in the midst of a complex transition from its economic reliance on the oil and gas industry towards a shift to green energy production. This iteration of BAS9 proposes to put care at the heart of our relationship with nature, and all beings, moving away from the hierarchical interaction that puts humans first.

 

BAS9 in Aberdeen includes a film programme in which a selection of artist films allows expanded connections with the works in the galleries. The daily film timings are listed in the exhibition guide available to download below.
