Shopping Event

On Saturday 15 June, 2019, Panel co-ran the Collective Matter shop on Calton Hill.

In the library of the City Dome, taking inspiration from the ‘Monuments’ hanging mobile by Alan Dimmick and Flensted, visitors were invited to make their own hanging mobile using images and shapes influenced by Alan’s Calton Hill portraits. In the shop, artist David Sherry explored the world of retail with pop up performances ‘Selling Receipts’ and ‘Lucky Business’ and on the hill, architectural historian and cultural landscape specialist Kirsten Carter McKee introduced the history of Calton Hill, revealing the stories which inspired our souvenir collection.
