Alan Robb (1946-2020) was Head of Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee from 1983-2003 and had a huge impact on a generation of artists. In particular, a group of painters emerged from Dundee in the 1980s with a distinctive visual style that owed much to Alan's influence - he later termed them 'the Dundee Imagists'. This exhibition celebrates his legacy, exploring his own influences and showing work by some of the imagist painters he inspired.
