Edwin Morgan: An Eardley On My Wall
This exhibition is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
23 October 2020 - 18 July 2021
Hunterian Art Gallery
This much anticipated focus exhibition was due to open in April 2020, coinciding with what would have been Scottish poet Edwin Morgan's 100th birthday. Created as part of the Edwin Morgan Centenary celebrations, the exhibition was postponed due to the pandemic and an online version created in its place. In October 2020, the physical exhibition opens to the public, offering visitors the chance to see the artworks which belonged to Morgan on the walls of the Hunterian Art Gallery.
Edwin Morgan: An Eardley On My Wall features thirteen works from the personal collection of Edwin Morgan (1920–2010). The selection once decorated the walls of his Anniesland flat and includes works by Scottish painters including Joan Eardley, Alasdair Gray and John Byrne. Morgan presented his collection to The Hunterian in 2004 and the works on display explore three strands of Morgan's life: creativity, national identity and sexuality.
