Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) is delighted to announce further details of its 2018 programme, through which the organisation will continue to build on its long-standing reputation for exhibiting and commissioning work from exceptional contemporary artists across the world.

Eve Fowler: what a slight. what a sound. what a universal shudder.
June 9–August 26, 2018

This will be the first major European exhibition of American artist Eve Fowler’s work, reflecting and further expanding on the artist’s intense feminist engagement with the words of Gertrude Stein over the past eight years. Since 2010, Fowler has created a beautiful body of work centred on Stein’s expansive writing practice, taking the form of posters, prints, billboards, paintings, and installations employing materials such as vinyl, neon, collage, print, painting and film.

Fowler’s work will fill DCA’s galleries over the summer and also reach beyond the walls of the institution to appear in public spaces across Dundee, punctuating the Scottish landscape with Stein’s prescient words.

There will also be a new book published as part of this project with newly commissioned texts from writers such as Sophie Collins, Eileen Myles, and Litia Perta.

Santiago Sierra: Black Flag
September 8–November 25, 2018

Marking the first solo presentation of Spanish artist Santiago Sierra’s work in Scotland, this exhibition comprises an immersive photographic and sound installation documenting the performative action of planting the universal symbol of the anarchist movement—the black flag—at the two most extreme points on earth: the North and South Poles.

In this complex project, Sierra critiques the concept of territory and the practices of nationalism imbued in such acts. Through this act of piracy, of anti-sovereignty, the artist subverts the conventions on which statehood is built and maintained. Black Flag is a collaboration between Santiago Sierra Studio and a/political, with special thanks to Lutz Henke.

Mike Kelley: Mobile Homestead
September 8–November 25, 2018

This exhibition will mark the Scottish premiere of Kelley’s remarkable Mobile Homestead film trilogy, made between 2010 and 2011 in the artist’s hometown of Detroit. In September 2010, Kelley’s Mobile Homestead—a facsimile of his childhood home constructed on the back of a trailer—made its maiden voyage from the city centre to the "mother ship," his original home in the suburbs of the city. These films chart the project’s journey across the city, with footage of this extraordinary road trip interspersed with interviews that chronicle the varied lives of those who populate this area today.

Mobile Homestead was commissioned by Artangel in association with MOCAD, LUMA Foundation and Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, with the generous support of the Artangel International Circle.

Lorna Macintyre: Pieces of You Are Here
December 8, 2018–February 24, 2019

This project will mark the first solo exhibition in a UK institution by Scottish artist Lorna Macintyre, debuting a new body of work commissioned specifically for DCA, and a new publication containing commissioned writing by Quinn Latimer.

Macintyre uses a broad spectrum of reference points—including literature, archaeology, Greek mythology and symbolism—as sources of inspiration for photographic and sculptural works which retain a level of intuitive decision making in their form. Often the work evolves as a response to source material that is language based—a phrase in a novel or a line in a poem. These references form a kind of oblique structure behind a piece of work, often lending a form for a composition or providing the impetus behind the choice of materials.

Margaret Salmon: Hole
December 8, 2018–February 24, 2019

DCA is delighted to be commissioning a new moving-image work by Glasgow-based American artist and filmmaker Margaret Salmon.

Salmon creates filmic portraits that weave together poetry and ethnography. Focusing on individuals in their everyday activities, her films capture the minutiae of daily life and infuse them with gentle grandeur, touching upon universal human themes. Adapting techniques drawn from various cinematic movements, such as Cinema Vérité, the European Avant Garde and Italian Neo-Realism, Salmon’s orchestrations of sound and image introduce a formal abstraction into the tradition of realist film.

Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) is supported by Creative Scotland and Dundee City Council.
