About Grey Area

Light & Dark
Happy & Sad
Good & Bad

We operate in the area in between.

A two-way process.

Somewhere between the sending and receiving of any communication lies a grey area, a complex phenomenon.
Mysterious and incomprehensible to anyone but the person receiving, interpreting.

It is all about perspective and our attitude to what we see, hear.

Understanding through our own filters of experience, interest, interaction and knowledge, inching closer.

A light-bulb moment of understanding and clarity.

SPAM will challenge our perspective and present a fresh take on old ideas and beliefs.

We invite you to question and explore the grey area – where things are not clear or definitive or one-way.

‘SPAM Art Collective’ was founded by graduates of Gray’s School of Art shortly after the end of their studies in 2016 with the intention of contributing to the ever-growing art scene by bringing the community pop-up shows, exhibitions and zines. Due to the various disciplines shared by each member, exciting opportunities arise for broadening the audience’s views on a range of subject matters. These contributions provide a forum for the members as they make their mark in the fast paced, socially engaged world of art today.

Venue: Patriothall Gallery, 1d Patriothall, Hamilton Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh EH3 5AY
