The project will
provoke positive debate and develop stronger international links. It
will generate a mass of critical dialogue by recognising the potential
of utilising non-gallery sites, publication and the Web as environments
that democratise artwork. By using these methods Virus hope to establish
a dialogue with the maximum potential audience.
The artists, some of whom have never visited or exhibited in Scotland before, will be invited to respond to the sites thereby establishing an alternative, informed and exploratory view of a familiar social and historical landscape. The project is a serious, unique and timely exploration of the context and fabric of the city from a strong and diverse mix of artists.
