University of Edinburgh
Talbot Rice Gallery

Talbot Rice Gallery presents the first major exhibition in the UK of Angelica Mesiti, one of the leading Australian artists of her generation.

In the Round builds upon her practice, to take us on a dynamic journey that extends through historical painting, ancient musical notation, geological specimens and musical instruments. Mesiti consistently returns to communication and translation in her sound, performance and video installations, reflecting the struggle of communities to co-exist. Through her selection of the University’s collections, she has delved into nature and deep time, as well as ideas of cycles, resonances and rotation. Taking this unique opportunity to combine present concerns with historical research, Mesiti allows her artworks to echo through ancient objects and to materialise in new works made for this expansive exhibition.

You can book tickets, but walk-ins are also welcome
