The skye times mobile

"Are teenage dreams so hard to beat?" (photo credit Philip Solovjov)

An exhibition exploring our formative years will come to Skye.

The contrasts of adolescence past and present will be examined, as comparatively tame and nostalgic teenage magazines are exhibited next to the never-ending clickbait of internet culture.

The exhibition is brought to Skye by the Travelling Gallery, a contemporary art gallery that brings contemporary art straight to you.

Our teenage dreams will be suspended as the exhibition looks at our prolonged adolescence and why 'teenage' no longer just refers to the period between the ages of 12 and 20.

The exhibition will include work by contemporary artists Arpita Shah, Alice Theobald and Holly White alongside archive material from Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh.

Celebrating its 40th year, the Travelling Gallery is a mobile art space inside a custom-built, bus, which brings high quality contemporary art exhibitions and events to schools and communities throughout Scotland.

The exhibition will come to Café Sia on Saturday 28 April from 10am to 5pm.
