(Scottish) Arts Council Watch…

Must be nice being a commercial gallery in Scotland.. cheap rents and some nice hand outs from the Scottish Government. Whilst government funded galleries struggle to pay rents and staff, The Modern Institute – who represent such artists as Urs Fischer, Thomas Houseago, Anselm Reyle and Katja Strunz – are receiving grants to attend art fairs.
We also look forward to seeing their ‘dynamic’ website that has been awarded £10,497 – what a wonderful resource for the people of Scotland and beyond.
