The Open, Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh Now in its third year, the Fruitmarket Open could have gone a number of ways in order to establish itseli iirmly in the Scottish visual art calendar. Last year‘s show in particular (a jumble at an exhibition) left the options open, and the ieeling that something more deiinite should happen this year. It could have gone the way at the Whitechapel Open in the early 80s, which included representation oi community work and amateur artists; it could have built up more representation of the traditional genres of work, hitherto seen annually in the RSA Open submission. A third option was to go tor a more succinct selection oi what might losely be called ‘avant garde’ work- recognising that, of course, there are a number of different directions within this which the selectors could choose to emphasise. The live selectors have gone ior this last option. Out oi a submission at around 300 artists, they have chosen 18, each represented by just one ortwo
' works. The show is thus a drastic (and
healthy) slimming down oi the previous two, which suits the Fruitmarket as a venue, both in terms at the type at work shown and in terms oi its presentation. Interestingly, although the works vary widely in material, intent and
sensibility, they do work together as a
coherent exhibition. Partly, this is to do with work being allowed space (an interesting comparison here with the British Art Show, which looks a lot better in the Hayward in London than it did in the McLeIlan in Glasgow). There is also a distinct feeling that this collection oi maturing artists (aged 26-44) will iorm a substantial part of the mainstream oi Scottish art in the 90s. Some ol them (Cameron, Galloway, O‘Connor, Onwin) are producing work which would go down well in a wider European context. What is surprising is the small amount oi sculpture shown, despite two at the selectors being sculptors (Tracy McKenna and Bill Scott) and the absence oi photography as a medium; what is uniorgivable is that only four oi the artists are women, again despite two ol the selectors being women (McKenna and Isobel Johnstone, curator at the ACGB collection). To claim that the work was submitted anonymously is disingenuous; much of the work submitted would be identifiable to the selectors as being by a particular person. It is deeply worrying that women are not being selected for what could turn out to be a pivotal exhibition, both lor Scottish art and ior the careers oi individual artists. (Hilary Robinson).
