Being part of the University of Edinburgh allows Talbot Rice to collaborate with a range of departments, academics and students to make distinct exhibitions.
We believe contemporary art is at its most vital when it creates new connections between different disciplines, engages people with varied specialist understandings and forges new pathways between the present and the past.
Talbot Rice has worked with most departments across the University, working recurrently with items from University of Edinburgh Collections. Our historic links and collaboration with Edinburgh College of Art have been further strengthened now it is part of the University. Talbot Rice provides support for students and unique opportunities including internships, volunteering positions and student-curated exhibitions.
The University of Edinburgh is home to around 200,000 artefacts, works of art, potted material, models, specimens, musical instruments and scientific apparatus.
