On this study day we will take in both parts of MARK WALLINGER MARK in Edinburgh and Dundee. We begin at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh with talks by Fiona Bradley (The Fruitmarket Gallery) and David Hopkins (University of Glasgow), followed by guided discussion on board the train to Dundee, and then talks by Beth Bate (DCA) and writer and psychoanalyst Anouchka Grose given at DCA. Talks will explore the theme of identity in the exhibition: at The Fruitmarket Gallery the focus will be on the public and political self, while at DCA attention will be given to the private and psychoanalytical side of identity.
