Inverleith House is delighted to present the very first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by the great American artist John Chamberlain (1927–2011). Best known for creating vibrantly coloured, dynamic metal sculptures made from salvaged materials and car parts, this exhibition will feature key works from his early and mid-career within the gallery and will extend into the Garden's landscaped grounds with an outdoor display of the artist's late sculptures of twisted metal foil.
This exhibition is presented with the kind support of the Estate of John Chamberlain, Gagosian Gallery, the DIA Art Foundation and The Henry Moore Foundation.
Part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.
