German artist Dieter Appelt presents a major work commissioned by the CCA and inspired by the late nineteenth-century Forth Rail Bridge near Edinburgh, Scotland.
Dieter Appelt: Forth Bridge – Cinema. Metric Space is the second of four exhibitions in the Tangent series, which brings contemporary artists into dialogue with the CCA Collection and results in newly commissioned works. On view alongside Appelt’s work is a selection of images from the CCA’s archive on the Forth Bridge, most notably photographs by Evelyn George Carey (1858–1932). Acquired in the late 1970s, the Forth Bridge Archive comprises some five hundred items, including individual photographic prints, albums, drawings, construction documents, and ephemera.
Curator: Hubertus von Amelunxen, CCA visiting curator.
