Interpretations was an action research project investigating the role of interpretation in breaking down barriers to access to contemporary visual art in four art galleries in Scotland. The project ran between October 2007 May 2008.

Interpretations was operated by Engage Scotland and supported by the National Lottery through the Scottish Arts Council and by the Hugh Fraser Foundation.

Interpretations … is research which emerges from and reflects on practice and it illuminates different approaches to interpretation, whilst drawing attention to potential avenues for further investigation.
