The Omega Workshop..
Sunday 11 to Sunday 25 October, open daily 12 to 5pm..
Artists Talk: Saturday 17 October, 2-4pm, free..
This year’s Dialogues presents, new work by Emily Fogarty and Ewan Sinclair produced under the title “Omega Workshop”. Appropriating the name from the Bloomsbury Group’s design enterprise both artists have plundered consumer culture in search of fragments and motifs to bend to their means. Whether it is the pattern of a curtain in the background of an episode of Smiley’s People, Swatch watches or segments of adverts gleaned from the internet they have adapted these sources into a colour-saturated, 80’s infused paean to domestic design and its glossy products. Although sharing sources their approaches are very different, Ewan Sinclair’s use of contemporary technology contrasting with Emily Fogarty’s more traditional modes of production results in an interesting conflict of craft vs digital.
Venue: Patriothall Gallery, 1D patriothall, off Hamilton Place, Edinburgh EH3 5AY
MAGAZINE 09: Creative Spaces.. Saturday 15 to Sunday 30 August, open daily 11am to 5pm..

An exhibition of new work by David McAllister and Alex Hetherington (with a group of international collaborators)..
David McAllister produces work which forms a marraige between sculptural form and technology. He draws his aesthetic from computer animations and comic book pages, creatng animated, interactive caricatures of recognisable forms. For this ambitious project he combines projection animation, sculpture and robotics.
Alex Hetherington will develop performances and film screenings around pre-exisitng material which will build in layers, constantly changing through the exhibition.
The concept of virtual spaces will be exploited by connecting the artists and activities in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
With international collaborators: Jim Colquhoun, Ben Schaeffer, Ben Fallon, Lyndsay Mann, Lewis Holleran, Janie Nicoll, Simon Gowing, Pete Nelson, Karla Milosovich, Richard T Walker, Ulrike Muller, Chris McCann and Victoria Skogsberg, and references to material from 1980 motion picture Cannibal Holocaust directed by Ruggero Deodato.

MAGAZINE 09: Creative Spaces
Call for Proposals..
Deadline: Monday 25 May 09, 5pm..
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is seeking proposals for its annual festival exhibition, MAGAZINE, which runs during August and forms part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.
MAGAZINE ‘09 is the first of a two-part project inspired by the planned development of ESW’s new international centre for contemporary sculpture. This first stage will examine notions of creative space as being formed by the relationships between individuals, objects and activities, an active participant rather than a passive container. The proposals should be a response to 1 of 3 spaces within the building and should somehow alter, subvert or reinterpret the notion of creative space.
“At some point architecture becomes sculpture, and sculpture becomes architecture; at some point they meet….. For instance a wall is an element of architecture. The dimension of that wall is also an element of sculpture” (Isamu Noguchi Architectural Forum Oct. 1948 p74) Each of the successful artists will be given sole access to one of the spaces, and successful applicants will receive a materials budget.
Please send a 500 word proposal of your project, supported by no more than 8 images/film, and a CV to Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. The deadline for completed proposals is Monday 25 May, 5pm.
Proposals can be sent by e-mail or post: by e-mail to: email@example.com or by post to Gordon Munro, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 25 Hawthornvale, Newhaven, Edinburgh EH6 4JT.
For more information, or to register interest, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or phone 0131 551 4490.
Applicants are welcome to visit ESW and view the available spaces – just phone 0131 551 4490 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time.

They are currently working on Cybraphon, an emotional-robotic-band-in-a-box, which will be showcased during the Edinburgh Festival at a new gallery venue.
