Curated by Cat Dunn, Crafted Selves showcases work by 13 established and emerging Scottish-based artists exploring what it means to have a dual identity in range of media, including sculpture, painting, ceramics, textiles, installation, film and creative writing. Many of the artists have a sense of self from having a cultural heritage which is both Scottish and one which is rooted in another cultural home, while others explore dualisms in sexuality and disability. They include Barbados-born Alberta Whittle, who represented Scotland at the 2022 Venice Biennale, and Zimbabwe-born Sekai Machache, who represents that country at the 2024 Venice Biennale. See our review from January 2024, when the exhibition was at St Andrews Museum.
