On the occasion of the Serpentine Gallery’s 40th anniversary, Pringle of Scotland is supporting the Serpentine by sponsoring the Gallery’s Education and Public Programmes. Pringle is known worldwide for knitwear and as one of Scotland’s leading companies, and this year is the company’s 195th birthday. The sponsorship will make an invaluable contribution towards the Gallery’s commitment to ‘art for all’.
Julia Peyton-Jones, Director and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director, Serpentine Gallery are curating a series of artists’ multiples entitled 195 Collaborations, which will be produced and distributed by Pringle as part of their global celebration of contemporary culture in Scotland. Artists include:
Tilda Swinton, who in 1995 conceived and performed The Maybe at the Serpentine Gallery in an installation created by Cornelia Parker. The actress slept in a glass case in the Gallery, for eight hours each day, for seven days.
Douglas Gordon, whose work appeared in the Serpentine Gallery exhibition Take me (I’m yours) in 1995.
David Shrigley, whose work was included in State of Play at the Gallery in 2004.
Luke Fowler, whose first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery took place at the Serpentine in 2009.
Alasdair Gray, who was a participant in the Serpentine Gallery Poetry Marathon in 2009.
