Rachel Maclean: JUPITER+ 27/10/2022 - 09/01/2023 JUPITER+Perth
JUPITER+ brings world-class artwork and creative learning opportunities to Perth and across Scotland.
Welcome to our bold new programme, which seeks to support young people across the country through world-class commissions and learning programmes nationwide. We launched the initiative last October (2022) in Perth with a commission by artist Rachel Maclean and a targeted creative learning programme aimed at 15 – 25 year olds.
JUPITER+ aims to tackle the diminishing uptake in creative subjects at school-leaver and higher education levels, with our most ambitious free learning programme to date inspiring the next generation of artists in Scotland.
After debuting a permanent version of Mimi at Jupiter Artland in 2021, Rachel Maclean brought her uniquely dark vision to Perth’s historic high street with an immersive installation that takes the form of a seemingly abandoned toyshop, the first iteration of the project ran from 28 October 2022 – 27 January 2023.
Look out for JUPITER+ popping up on Ayr high street this Autumn!
JUPITER+ is our new off-site commissioning programme, which will see world-class artworks brought to locations and communities across Scotland. The programme is powered by the belief that everyone should have access to the best of international art at their doorstep and our mission to inspire the next generation of artists in Scotland.
Jupiter Artland is already home to an acclaimed learning programme delivering year-round opportunities for learners of all ages and welcoming over 30,000 individuals for free sessions at our home in rural West Edinburgh. JUPITER+ seeks to expand the impact of this work by evolving a commissioning platform which will see some of the world’s most compelling and exciting artists bringing contemporary art into communities, classrooms and amplifying the voice of young people in the role culture plays in our lives as active citizens.
