Scotland + Venice is the commissioning body for selecting the artists to represent Scotland as part of the The Venice Biennale. It is a partnership between Creative Scotland, National Galleries Scotland and British Council Scotland.
For the 57th Biennale Rachel Maclean presented a new film ‘Spite Your Face’, curated by Alchemy Film & Arts in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh.
We worked with the curator, artist and partners to project manage the 2017 iteration including: managing the £430k budget; scheduling; marketing and event management. It also included devising and implenting the professional development programme working with 6 further and higher education institutions to create opportunities for 15 students to participate. The exhibition ran from May – November 2017 attracting 23,000 visitors before returning to the Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh. ‘Spite Your Face’ continues its tour of the UK and Ireland.
