Collective Gallery, Edinburgh
The Collective Gallery have taken up theirtrack-lighting and walked up the Royal Mile from 52 to 166. The move has its pros and cons. Gone are the shop windows which attracted passers-by. It‘s lirst lloor now with only a hanging sign to entice. But between the Bridges, they have moved to the prime block at the Mile, have more wall space and though the rooms seem smallerthis upstairs gallery is perhaps a more hospitable place.
Founded in 1984, the Collective is run 4
by artists. The membership selects the exhibitions programme and a committee of membersjuggles plans and projects with the tiny budgets. Administrator Linda Graham is optimistic about their luture but financial worries are always at the door. The annual grant oi £5500 lrom the Scottish Arts Council is expected to have a mimimal increase and the District Council. though they have

Booked up } untilJuly.the gallery hopes to start I swapping shows with other artist-run galleries in England and Northern Ireland in the neartuture. Performance and discussion will also lorm part at their new programme. Artists will be encouraged to talkabouttheirworkand ‘video nights‘ will be hosted to stimulate debate. Alreadythe gallery have links with larger spaces like the Richard Demarco Gallery. 369 and Edinburgh College at Art close by which should allowthem to host events that mightbe cramped intheir own space.
Most recently, the Collective have advertised lorsite specilic proposals for a project called Dutside/lnsite. A week belore the closing date they had had several replies. Disappointineg though. only one at these came lrom Scotland. the rest lrom the south and lrom Holland. With the National

Despite the shoestrings however. the Collective does seem to be embarking on a period at activity. Their lirst

The Collective welcomes proposals lorexhibitions and applications tor membership lrom artists working in or out of Scotland (students mayjoin but are not able to exhibit). Contact Linda Graham lordetails. (Alice Bain)
