Alberta Whittle @ National Galleries of Scotland

6 September 2023 - 7 January 2024

Alberta Whittle’s exhibition, Create Dangerously, invites you to slow down and pause.  In her works, Alberta addresses the brutality and harm caused by colonialism, the Transatlantic trade in enslaved people, and the ongoing climate crisis. Through symbolic artworks, she pulls apart the belief that ’racism and police brutality is [just] an English problem or an American problem’.   Instead, she underlines Scotland’s complicity in the structures of white supremacy. Often deeply personal, weaving stories of family and belonging, Alberta ultimately offers a message of hope, asking us to imagine a world outside of these damaging systems and ways of thinking.
