with Shola von Reinhold
What happens when a team of poets joins a major cultural organisation busily remaking itself ready for the middle years of the 21st century? And what results when you throw a slew of unpredictable geopolitical and social shifts into their path?
The answer is a treasure chest of insights. The poems, essays and illustrations within this book find fascination in 50 years of art and artists at the Fruitmarket in the centre of Edinburgh. In their subject matter are the movements of creative work and ideas across borders, the make-up and history of the city, and gothic fantasies of galleries reimagined as mortuaries or as gardens. As well as a temperature check on a remarkable time in a specific place, pulsing through it all is the abundant imaginative energy needed to convince us to make our commitment to new living.
