Abstract or Description

The Two-Way Patch is organised by the inaugural students of MScR Collections and Curating Practices in partnership with the new Contemporary Art Research Collection and CodeBase, Edinburgh.

The University of Edinburgh has launched a new collection designed to enhance research and postgraduate teaching in the fields of contemporary art and curating. Developed with the support of staff and students in the School of History of Art, its first acquisition is The Common Sense (2014/15) by the New York-based artist Melanie Gilligan.

For this occasion, we have asked four contributors to answer questions via email. Whilst some questions are directly related to the themes presented in The Common Sense, others speak more specifically of how public art collections (such as Contemporary Art Research Collection) respond to the shifting landscape of art collecting. Contributors include Kirstie Skinner, Harry Weeks, Emily Rosamond and Karen Gregory. This will also be available in our upcoming catalogue exhibition, accessible via Date TBA.
