Adam McEwen, ‘I hate you’, 2010, Ingleby Gallery

The ‘Billboard for Edinburgh’ project ran from 2008 - 2016, when the Gallery was situated in its Calton Road premises and transformed a defunct billboard on the end wall of the building. The Billboard installation would change every three months and from each a limited edition print would be published. The list of contributors includes Turner Prize nominees and winners and artists with world renowned reputations alongside emerging talents.
Easily misread, McEwen’s print was inspired by a song of the same name by sixties American garage band The Monks.

About Adam McEwen

In his sculptures, paintings, and installations, Adam McEwen deploys a series of interventions that thwart our expectations and jolt us into a new awareness of the mass media dominating our daily lives. A former obituary writer for The Daily Telegraph, McEwen has exhibited blown-up reproductions of newspaper obits of still-living celebrities like Bill Clinton, Jeff Koons, and Nicole Kidman. He has also turned text messages from friends into framed haiku-like riddles and exhibited "gum" paintings. McEwen's influences include Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, and Michael Asher.
