Another Country- Aspects of Scottish Migration
March 12, 2018 – June 3, 2018

Migration affects everybody either directly or indirectly. In Minnesota, there are 428,000 foreign-born residents, 8% of the population.
This exhibition brings together twelve artists from distinct, ethnically and culturally diverse backgrounds, all born or currently living in Scotland. It assesses the historical and, at times negative, impact of Scottish colonialism on the United States, while at the same time tackling issues with contemporary migration, a complex subject with rapidly growing relevance in the current political climate. The work presented is personal as most of the artists are migrants themselves.
Referencing the title of James Baldwin’s 1962 novel of the same name, the exhibition highlights that for each individual living in the same city, America can become ‘another country’, depending on one’s ethnicity, status and situation.
Prejudice against migrants has been in place for generations and our aim with the project is to highlight that migration is an ancient phenomenon that has not always been welcomed but has enabled significant benefits for countries that eventually become home.
The exhibition does not aim to instruct the visitor but rather encourage a discussion. Through a series of events and seminars it provides an opportunity for sustainable dialogue with migrants, artists, students and academics that will lead to new insights into community building and integration.
The project is co-curated by Euan Gray, Elaine Rutherford and Alberta Whittle.

Group exhibition ‘Precipice’ at Deiglan, Akureyri, Iceland, curated by Dana Hargrove
14:00 – 17:00, May 13th & 14th, 2017
Deiglan, Listagil , Art Street, Kaupvangsstræti 23, Akureyri, Iceland
Artists Dana Hargrove, Dawn Roe and Rachel Simmons and geographer Lee Lines announce a group exhibition titled:
The USA-based artists and collaborators of the group exhibition Precipice have created an exhibition that uses the Icelandic landscape as a vehicle, or jumping off point (precipice) to prompt thoughtful deliberation on universal concerns. Each artist has allowed Iceland’s landscape to infiltrate into the content of their art practice while conducting fieldwork or participating in Icelandic artist residencies. The works, of varying mediums and theoretical approach, promote multi-faceted interpretations, yet often cross paths in areas concerning memory, perception, representation, consumerism, climate change, and sustainability.
The installation format, including the use of wall text, encourages broader conversation regarding our perceptions of landscape as a natural, cultural, and politicized entity. The artists wish to serve as alt rogue ambassadors (#altgov) for the USA, among the many in opposition to the current Trump administration’s attack on science and intellectualism, which unless resisted could very well jeopardize life on this beautiful planet.
