The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art will mount a ground-breaking, two-part exhibition at Modern One and the Scottish National Gallery, offering a rich, diverse and coherent view of the way that contemporary art has developed in Scotland over the past 25 years. More than 30 artists will be represented across the two sites, and works made at key moments in the last quarter-century will be shown in parallel with new work by both established and promising younger artists.
At the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the exhibition will include spectacular installations by Ross Sinclair (Real Life Rocky Mountain, 1996), Graham Fagen (Peek-A-Jobby, 1998) and Turner Prize-winner Simon Starling (Burn-Time, 2000). A diverse range of work by artists such as Victoria Morton, Alison Watt, Julie Roberts, Lucy McKenzie, Kate Davis, Charles Avery and Jonathan Owen will demonstrate the continuing vitality of painting and drawing in Scotland and there will be new installations in sculpture, painting, collage and printmaking by Claire Barclay, Ciara Philips and Alex Dordoy. Douglas Gordon’s celebrated 24 Hour Psycho 1993 will be among the video installations on show, as will Smith/Stewart’s Breathing Space (1997), Roddy Buchanan’s Gobstopper (1999) and Soda Stream (1997) and Torsten Lauschmann’s Growing Zeros (Digital Clock) (2010).
