The Show

What you see is where you're at launches a year of celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. The Collection will be divided into thematic displays, bringing together iconic works, forgotten pieces and new acquisitions.

Features include a room focusing on still life, space dedicated to collage, two successive rooms contrasting the use of colour around 1910 with the use of colour in Pop and Op art from the 1960s, and a further room is devoted to an exploration of white.

Elsewhere, single artists or works are made the focal point, such as Martin Boyce's large-scale installation Electric Trees and Telephone Booth Conversations, a two-room display curated by the artist Callum Innes, rooms dedicated to American artist David Schutter and German artist Kitty Kraus, and works by Douglas Gordon. THERE WILL BE NO MIRACLES HERE, a major work by Nathan Coley, will be installed in the grounds of the Dean Gallery.

This dynamic programme showcases new displays from the collection, as well as new commissions from leading Scottish and international artists. Displays will change on a rotating basis, so there will be something new to see each time you visit.
