Martin Parr - Think of Scotland

Martin Parr loves Scotland. The world-renowned photographer has been visiting for over 25 years, taking pictures the length and breadth of the country, from Ayrshire to Aberdeenshire and from Orkney to the Western Isles.

Presented for the first time at Aberdeen Art Gallery, 'Think of Scotland' explores leisure, landscape, food and community with Parr's characteristic twist.

Also on display is 'Aberdeen at Leisure', a new series of portraits of the city commissioned by Aberdeen Art Gallery to celebrate its landmark redevelopment. Will you spot someone you know?

Alchemy - Inspiring Art, Inspiring Science

The first exhibition in our new gallery showcasing work by local schools, colleges, arts organisations and artists presents work by Aberdeen school pupils inspired by objects borrowed from our collection during the Art Gallery redevelopment. This innovative cross-curricular project encouraged young minds to explore links between art and science through real artworks and artefacts which were displayed in school and brought to life through sessions with artists, our curators and University of Aberdeen scientists.
