Exhibition Archive: The Model (22/11/13 – 9/12/13) Edinburgh College of Art

The Model

The Model, curated by Gordon Brennan (Head of Painting) and Neil Lebeter (Art Collections Curator), brought together models from across University Collections; ranging from Geology, Veterinary Science Anatomy, Music and Architecture. These teaching models were displayed alongside work by invited artists and students from Edinburgh College of Art and Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen. Students were asked to consider the theme of the Model as:

• Miniature.
• Proposition.
• Ideal.
• Explanation
• Maquette.
• Replica.
• Prototype.

The exhibition was held in the Sculpture Court of ECA and provided an excellent opportunity to highlight to students and the general public the breadth of University Collections and a contemporary reflection on an idea that has fascinated artists for many years.
