This exhibition opened ten years to the day that DCA first opened its doors with the exhibition Prime. The Associates is a survey exhibition charting some of the most talented artists to emerge from Dundee since the late 1990s. All of the artists trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and have gone on to national and international acclaim.
The title of the exhibition is affectionately pinched from the seminal Dundee pop group The Associates who were one of the city's greatest artistic statements. Billy Mackenzie and Alan Rankine burst on the scene forty years ago with their first single Boys Keep Swinging and we want to celebrate their influence on modern Dundee. This exhibition reveals an 18 carat love affair with Dundee.
