Gateway Exchange, Edinburgh
The haunt and hollowness oi Belsen are present in the pastels at the Gateway Exchange. in ’Unacceptable Solution’ there is even the barbed wire. But the artist Diana Constance, American by birth, European by adoption, has attempted to capture the horrors at a tear which lives with us now. AIDS.
In gossip and advertising, AIDS is a subject connected iirst with sex, then with condoms, then, and usually abstractly, with death. And ior most people, it's something that happens to someone else. The suit edge oi Constance's pastels attempt to portray AIDS not as a minority aiiliction, but as
a human tragedy which should move us all.
This exhibition may be one oi the last to be shown at the Gateway. Lack oi iunds are bringing the centre close to closure and it support cannot be tound by September the whole operation will be torced to told. A member at the Gateway said this week that some sponsors had been withdrawn in the past year alter the centre published a controversial Independent report on Peterhead Prison, a subject at particular interest to the iounder oi the Gateway, Jimmy Boyle, an ex-lnmate oi the Special Unit at Darlinnie Prison. There, he discovered a talent ior sculpture and since his release, 80er has been deeply involved in helping addicts and disadvantaged young people to combat despair in their lives through art.
The Gateway has been operating ior six years and has expanded to contain a theatre, caie, gallery and workshops. While many aspects oi the centre have been successiul, it has now reached a crossroads. Do they need and can they ilnance a building at that size? How to reach more at those who need the centre? How to raise the iunds? Jimmy 80er is currently discussing the iuture ot the Gateway with the District Council — as it is the only centre at its kind in Edinburgh, it’s closure would create a large gap In the iacilities oiiered to those who need it’s support.
