Scottish Conservatoire – conservative indeed!


This small exhibition of photographs in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Royal Scottish Conservatoire is a simple array of photographs that have all the artistry of a wedding photographer. Homogeneous in style, colour and composition, they say little about the people, apart from the clichéd ‘mime artist’ who has a suitably clichéd white mask next to him. They make the extraordinary look ordinary. Why is this stuff so damn unadventurous? Where's the art? What a wasted opportunity.
