The building houses the Gallery of Modern Art’s Dada and Surrealism collections. It also contains many works by Edinburgh-born Sir Eduardo Paolozzi. This Edinburgh gallery is located just to the East of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
Sculptor Sir Eduardo Paolozzi offered a collection of prints, drawings, maquettes, moulds and the contents of his studio to the Dean Gallery in 1994. The gallery includes an artist’s library.
The conversion was undertaken by the architect Sir Terry Farrell (architect).
The gallery was opened in 1999, opposite the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which is its sister gallery. In 2011 the buildings were renamed Modern Art Two and Modern Art One respectively. The conversion of the building into a gallery was designed by Terry Farrell.
Since its opening it has housed the Paolozzi Gift, a collection of his works given to the Gallery of Modern Art in 1994 by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi. It contains a large collection of Dada and Surrealist art and literature, much of which was given by Gabrielle Keiller. It is also used for temporary exhibitions.
