New Scottish Artists -
A Royal Scottish Academy Exhibition Supported by the Fleming-Wyfold Foundation
New Scottish Artists
heralds a new partnership between the Royal Scottish Academy and the Fleming-Wyfold Foundation. Following the RSA New Contemporaries 2014 exhibition at the RSA (15 February – 12 March), a selection of works from the show will come to the Fleming Collection, offering the artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a London audience. The selection includes the winners of this year's Fleming-Wyfold Bursary, the Brownlee Brothers.

The Royal Scottish Academy has long been a supporter of education and emerging artists. Having presented various annual student competitions and shows throughout the 20th century, radical changes were made in 2008 to replace the former RSA Student Exhibition with RSA New Contemporaries, the UK’s largest survey of emerging artists. As part of this initiative the RSA began to select smaller numbers of artists directly from their degree shows, inviting them to make new works to show in the RSA galleries the following spring. This new annual survey offered artists the opportunity to show a body of work, rather than one work in isolation, and also developed stronger collaborative links with the Art Schools and Schools of Architecture in Scotland.

Producing a world-class, yearly account of the best of Scottish graduates under one roof and in a singular publication, RSA New Contemporaries has become a key event in the exhibiting calendar, attended by curators, collectors, gallerists and visitors from across Europe. By summer 2014, 360 artists will have exhibited in RSA NC, and 60 more will have been selected at the 2014 degree shows.

The accompanying RSA publication will showcase all of the artists exhibiting in RSA NC 2014.

Foundation & Trust: (un)coverings
is an exciting new project with artist collective Foundation & Trust utilising all three floors of the Fleming Collection. For Gallery One artists Paul Macgee and Helen Turner have selected 16 paintings from the collection which until recently have been hanging in the offices of Fleming Family & Partners (a key corporate sponsor of the Fleming Collection). Interested in the decorative status of the paintings, originally collected by Robert Fleming and Co. to brighten the walls of the bank, F&T have created bespoke wallpaper to hang behind these paintings. Using a template from 1980s design collective Memphis, the wallpaper is a composite of landscapes taken from paintings in the Fleming Collection and paintings made by F&T of objects from the offices of Fleming Family & Partners.

In Gallery Two will be a new body of work by Foundation & Trust which is a site-specific response to the context of the space and the paintings in Gallery One. A large carpet painting installed in the centre of the gallery re-appropriates abandoned carpet tiles from Fleming Family & Partners and a series of paintings and collages have been created in matte emulsion interior paint, using a palette of 16 colours drawn from the office environment. The works combine landscape and still life imagery (both of which are synonymous with the collection), alongside patterns taken from furniture at Fleming Family & Partners, allusions to various historical avant-garde movements, and diagrams.

F&T is a flexible and open collective, which in the past has consisted of artists, theorists, scientists and performers. Based across the globe, recent projects have included work with University of London, Banff Centre, Canada, and CERN. A publication exploring history, memory, money and photography has been produced by the artists in conjunction with this exhibition.

Adrian Wiszniewski in conversation with Alex Kidson and Selina Skipwith
21 May

Scottish artist Adrian Wiszniewski (born in Glasgow in 1958) remains best known as one of the ‘New Glasgow Boys’, who shot to prominence in the mid-1980s with huge, exuberant figure paintings as redolent of fantasy and myth as they were attuned to the workings of contemporary thought and everyday life. He will discuss his work in relation to a new book by Alex Kidson, which is the first to provide an overview of Wiszniewski’s art over thirty years of continuity and change. There will also be a rug designed by Wiszniewski and made by Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh on display for the evening.

Doors 6pm for a 6.30pm seated talk, welcome drink included
Tickets: £12.50, £10 Friends and students
