RSA Director, Colin R Greenslade writes: ‘Latitudes’ begins a year in which we will celebrate artist research and, in particular, forty years of the RSA John Kinross Scholarships – funding research initiatives for ten graduating artists and architects to Florence annually. This exhibition also reinforces to us that 2020 was one of the most challenging years in living history – not that we require reminding of such at present. Artists show us paths of experience and reinterpret this knowledge into a visual language for us to contemplate our own place in the world. We have all had that time to contemplate of late and re-assess what our lives, and those with whom we share it, means to us.

‘Latitudes’ takes us into these realms in a range of media and from a breadth of sources. Travel, isolation, loss, reflection and re-engagement all feature here and the results are truly wonderful.

The Royal Scottish Academy is indebted to our partners at The Barns-Graham Trust, and the families of David Michie RSA and William Littlejohn RSA in assisting us to offer these vital opportunities on an annual basis. We are also very thankful to the supporters of the Pandemic Award which has given significant opportunity to artists to produce work which chronicles these most difficult of times.

Please note that in line with the latest Scottish Government announcement, the Royal Scottish Academy is currently closed to the public. Our gallery programme will resume as soon as it is safe to do so but in the meantime we will continue to host exhibitions and events online. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to welcome you back very soon.
