Audio from the book launch and presentation by Dr Simon Sheikh. This is followed by a discussion with Kate Gray, Director of Collective, Edinburgh chaired by Caroline Woodley from Afterall, the journal of art, context and enquiry.
In 2018, Collective will open its new home – the restored City Observatory on Calton Hill, Edinburgh. Reflecting on the long journey undertaken to reach this point, Towards a City Observatory: Constellations of art, collaboration and locality, invites artists, writers and thinkers to imagine a new kind of observatory, which brings people together through contemporary art.
