Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh.
Any ideas that Tartan, an exhibition mounted by the Edinburgh Festival in association with the National Museums and Talbot Rice Gallery, is In any way similar to Murray Grigor’s exploration oi kitsch, Scotch Reels, oi a lew years back, should be scotched at the outset.
This is a rather sober exhibition, beautiiully mounted but no less po-iaced lorthat. An attempt to give a potted history oi tartan is thwarted by the relentless Ioity tone. An alien judging the Scots by this exhibition would imagine the populace as preening aristocrats.
Moving out oi the dim Upper Library oi Edinburgh’s University’s Old College with its eerie headless mannequins sporting 18th and 19th century ball gowns and dress tartan, we enter the clinical white oi the 20th century by way of a handiul oi military uniforms.
This is designertartan with a vengeance— Schiaparelll, YSL, Valentino creations iostle shoulder-to-shoulder, almost obscuring gems Ilke Nicholas Falrbalrn’s own contribution to haute couture. Why so iew home-grown
Dutiits by Vivienne Westwood (an all-too-reiined version oi tartan bondage trousers) and Seventies’ platiorm shoes with Dress Stewart uppers) pay but lip service to tartan’s pop styles. Where’s the skinhead's iriend, the tartan-lined bomber jacket orthe Bay City Rollers tartan-trimmed baggies?
Instead we have the ghastly good taste ol the lull-length ‘hostess skirt’ (Moira Anderson thou shouldst be here). Upstairs, tucked away in a glass case ls Wallis Windsor's tailored two-piece by Dior and the Duke’s double-breasted gangster suit in MacDonald Lord oi the Isles. There are also Bonnie Prince Charlie’s trews and the Government decree which banned the wearing oi the kilt In 1747.
A lot oi American money went into mounting Tartan, and It shows. An elaborate and glitzy antidote to the cheapened image ol tartan on millions oi shortbread tins, the exhibition ralses almost as many questions as it answers and leaves some uniorgiveable gaps. (Kennedy Wilson)
