NOW: Jenny Saville

Senior Curator Lucy Askew will lead a tour of the third instalment of NOW, the three-year contemporary programme being held at Modern One. This show will include a major survey of works by renowned British artist Jenny Saville. Saville is a graduate of The Glasgow School of Art, and this presentation marks the first museum exhibition of the artist’s work ever to be staged in Scotland. Featuring monumental paintings and drawings by Saville dating between 1992 and 2017, the show demonstrates the scale and ambition of the artist’s practice, and her singular and dynamic approach to composition, gesture, materials and subject matter. NOW also features work by five further artists – Sara Barker, Christine Borland, Robin Rhode, Markus Schinwald and Catherine Street – to investigate themes relating to the body, performance, process and materiality.
