For this exciting new exhibition, DCA reaches beyond the gallery walls to encompass diverse aspects of the city.  New works by seven artists reveal fresh insights into our surroundings. Showing simultaneously in the galleries and three other locations in the city, Our Surroundings presents an outstanding breadth of vision as the artists offer a dynamic engagement with different people, places and environments in Dundee.
