Jonathan Monk - Billboard for Edinburgh

February 1 - April 10, 2010

Jonathan Monk is the seventh artist to create a work for Billboard for Edinburgh, Ingleby Gallery's unique public art project.

 

Jonathan Monk's work frequently references avant-garde art of the 1960s and 70s. Monk's text-based billboard installation pays homage to conceptual artist Keith Arnatt who passed away in 2008 at the age of 72.

 

The billboard is based on one of Arnatt's seminal texts from the early 1970s. It is both a clever transformation of the artist's original text and a poignant tribute to this influential but often overlooked figure in 20th century art.

 

As part of the Billboard for Edinburgh project, Jonathan Monk will be producing an original limited edition print of his billboard image. Full details will follow shortly on the prints and editions section of our website.
