Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture

Marchmont House

Marchmont House's series of art events continues this September with 'Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture', which will see experts, industry leaders and artists coming together to consider what Scottish Sculpture stands for; shine a light on the giants like Paolozzi, Turnbull & Laing; uncover the hidden stories; and support a new generation of talented sculptors working in Scotland today.

Scotland has been a source of beautiful, inspiring and internationally influential modern sculpture since the Second World War, but has often been under-celebrated. Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture  will unveil, explore and celebrate modern Scottish Sculpture. The event is lead by experts, industry leaders and artists who will seek to define what Scottish Sculpture stands for, and to shine a light on the giants like Eduardo Paolozzi, William Turnbull and Gerald Laing, to uncover the hidden stories and support a new generation of talented sculptors working in Scotland today.
