Edinburgh’s newest artist run space opens at Edinburgh College Granton Campus.
Developed as a core element of our new Professional Practice and Exhibition programme on the HND Contemporary Art Practice Course we were delighted to launch hubCAP Gallery with an exhibition of 2D work by all the current participants of the course.
The launch was a fantastic success and and was well attended by freinds, family, students and colleagues from across the college but in particular it was fantastic to see so many of the CAPalumni family coming from as far afeild as Dundee, Galashiels, Bathgate and Glasgow.
hubCAP is the first in a series of initiatives in development that will provide CAP students with real world experiences that will enable them to gain key knowledge and skills to identify and progress in their developing area of contemporary art practice and beyond. Additional initiatives will include campus based opportunities including; a lecturer shadowing / metoring programme, library placements with the Art & Design Subject Specialist and art journalism / marketing along with external placement opportunities with our external partners.
The gallery adopts a model of Artist Run spaces and is organised and facilitated by a selected committee of current HND CAP students who will develop and deliver a programme of exhibitions by emerging and early career artists and complimented by a and events and workshops programme.
