BRUCE McLean is one of the most important living Scottish artists. His work, in the ’60s, as a performance and conceptual artist was ground-breaking and very influential. His paintings and ceramics are avidly collected.McLean has written a book called A LAWNMOWER IN THE LOFT, a hilarious number of anecdotes from his time working with other artists in London during the early years of performance and conceptual art, his student days in London as a Scot, his love of a drink and the consequences of that love.

For his first public appearance in Scotland for many years, McLean will be interviewed by Paul Robertson of Lust & The Apple on Friday 15th December and there will be a performative aspect to the evening including a reading from McLean’s book.

Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to meet Bruce and buy a signed copy of the book.
Places need to be booked in advance, as space is limited. Via Eventbrite, here.On the next day (Saturday, 16th December at 8pm), an exhibition of new work by McLean will open at Lust & The Apple gallery, in Temple Midlothian. Other artists exhibiting will include the well known Scotland-based artist, David Bellingham, with two new major works and new work by Edinburgh’s Natalie Doyle (with a performance in the toilets at Lust & The Apple) and also a new external installation by Edinburgh’s Abi Lewis.

This event will be free and there will be a minibus leaving the Tron Square on the evening for those wishing to attend (7pm and 8pm), returning at 10pm and 11pm. Food, drink and the artists will be present.
