This landmark series of exhibitions will celebrate some of the very best art to have emerged from Scotland in the last 25 years, and will be shown at more than 50 venues across the country from June to October 2014. This nationwide programme, which has been developed as a partnership between the National Galleries of Scotland and Glasgow Life, supported by Creative Scotland, will be one of the most ambitious celebrations of contemporary art ever held by a single country, recognising the huge international acclaim that artists working in Scotland have achieved over the last generation.
At the Scottish National Gallery, large-scale installations such as Steven Campbell’s 1990 Third Eye Centre exhibition On Form and Content and Turner Prize-winner Martin Boyce’s 2002 Tramway show Our Love is Like the Flowers, the Rain, the Sea and the Hours will be recreated. Also on show will be the abstract canvases of Turner Prize Nominee Callum Innes, video projections by Rosalind Nashashibi, and a sculptural installation by Christine Borland, not seen in Scotland before. The exhibition will also provide a challenge for Turner Prize-nominees Karla Black and David Shrigley to produce new work in response to the Gallery’s imposing neo-classical spaces.
