With the focus of survey shows predominantly on emergent artists, what can we learn from a later generation of contemporary visual artists? ‘Live Your Questions Now’ is a survey exhibition of Scottish, UK and international contemporary artists over 60 years old.

The exhibition title is inspired by a quote from Rainer Maria Rilke’s ‘Letters to a young poet’ (1934):

“Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
