Decision Time

Decision Time is an exhibition with art works, performances, talks and dialogues exploring decision-making in the context of the Scottish Referendum on independence.

As time has progressed towards the referendum people are engaged and debate abounds. When striving for objective knowledge to evaluate and base our decisions on, we are confronted with subjective reasoning, hopes and fears.

Decision Time brings together works that explore, often playfully, individual processes, reflections and conclusions. Just like other members of the public, artists have researched, expressed their preferences, beliefs, feelings, affiliations, confusions and decisions.

The exhibition exists in the week before the historic referendum on Scottish independence takes place.

The show is not party political, although there are different views expressed in some of the works. Decision Time is a celebration of the process of choosing, the act of deciding and the possible consequences of those choices at this moment in Scotland.
