Each participating gallery was asked to consider the generic research question:

How can we use interpretation to increase access to contemporary art, and to address perceived barriers to intellectual access?

The research report, written by Interpretations Coordinator, Maureen K Michael, draws on work by Kirstie Skinner, (Collective Gallery); Sarah Derrick, (Dundee Contemporary Arts); Carol Dunbar,(Pier Arts Centre) and Zoe Fothergill, (Talbot Rice Gallery).

The report is downloadable in individual sections:
