      The Scottish Parliament - Tuesday 3 to Friday 20 September 2019

      Bringing Scotland’s national World War One centenary programme to a close, What Do We Learn From All Th1s? is a unique new installation telling Scotland’s WW1 story from the perspective of 100 young artists from across the country.

      Combining traditional printmaking with innovative technologies, the exhibition tells 100 stories gathered from all corners of Scotland. The matrices used to develop each of the artist’s unique prints will be mounted on wooden plinths arranged in a map of Scotland, with augmented reality technology allowing visitors to explore each story in detail with an iPad.  

      From the sacrifices made at the frontline to the vital effort on the home front, the installation takes in a diverse range of stories and subjects that will resonate throughout Scotland, providing an all-encompassing overview of the nation’s immeasurable contribution to the war.
