This open exhibition was inspired by John Muir’s life and writing and has drawn together 28 established and emerging contemporary artists and poets from across Scotland and beyond.
John Muir viewed the natural world from within, saying, ‘Most people are on the world, not in it’. From our position within a global, yet increasingly disparate culture, perhaps it is timely to ask where we place ourselves in relation to the nature of our surrounding environments?
Drawing & painting, sculpture, film and artists books are installed within the whitewashed stone walls of, what would previously have been John Muir’s garden, individual works contributing to a burgeoning ecological dialogue embedded in the very fabric of this place, John Muir’s Birthplace in Dunbar.
You are cordially invited to the exhibition opening on Friday 5th Aug 5 – 7.00pm,
John Muir’s Birthplace, Dunbar -With conversation between Joseph Beuys and John Muir by Sara Sinclair and Rebecca Green 5.30pm
Exhibition open from Aug 6th to Sept 4th
