Where Ideas Are Born brings together the work of over 20 photographers from the celebrated Magnum agency, including Inge Morath, Eve Arnold and Robert Capa. Around 70 photo portraits of internationally-renowned artists capture the moment in their studios when the spark of creativity ignites and ideas are born. Artists such as Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ai Weiwei and Yayoi Kusama are all seen in their creative environments: from the cramped studios of the Parisian avant-garde artists at the beginning of the 20th century, the New York lofts of the American pop and minimal artists, to the highly professional studios of the international stars of the contemporary art market.

Where are your ideas born? We worked with Aberdeen Artists Society to gather images from local artists of their creative spaces. These will be displayed on a digital screen as part of the exhibition.
