Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Originally shown at the Edinburgh Arts Festival 2019, these new artworks by Nathan Coley are based on extracts from a huge 19th century scenic wallpaper showing images of North America as seen through the eyes of European settlers. Created by a French company, the wallpaper has found its way into numerous stately homes across the globe, including the famous Diplomatic Room of the White House. Coley, a Turner Prize nominee, has emblazoned the vintage paper with words and phrases that subtly alter or critique the original images.
