‘Ideas of Beauty’ is an exhibition organised by Edinburgh’s Democratic Camera Club. Beauty is a difficult word for many artists. It is associated with cliché, with the ‘chocolate box’ image. The notion of what is beautiful changes with time, and between different cultures. Taste in beauty is also influenced by social conditioning. Contemporary art sees beauty in ideas as much as the object.
This exhibition invites artists to investigate, subvert and celebrate ‘Ideas of Beauty’ in their own style.
Art works will be for sale.
7 December – 17 December 2016
