The Fruitmarket in Edinburgh’s new Warehouse space is hosting its first stand-alone commission: London-based artist Jyll Bradley‘s Pardes takes inspiration from Scottish growing – appropriate to the venue’s history and name. A reference to the structures historically used by Scottish fruit growers making the most of natural light and warmth, the title comes from an ancient name for a walled fruit garden that gave rise to the familiar word ‘paradise’.

Making use of the Warehouse as performance space, the opening on 26th November will see a special performance by Scottish Ensemble – the first in a programme of live music, dance and other performance in the former nightclub location adjoining the original Fruitmarket. Jane Atkins will perform Anna Clyne’s work, Reveal at 6:15pm and 7:15pm.

The gallery’s exhibition Howdena Pindell: A New Language is also available to visit until 2nd May 2022: marking a six-decade long career with a selection of paintings and works on paper, video and a publication featuring her writing alongside newly commissioned essays about her work, it highlights the American artist’s responses to racism and white supremacy since the 1970s.
