Glasgow and Edinburgh Galleries

Posted on November 21, 2012

On my visit to Scotland for Sonica I was really impressed by some of the new spaces in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

In Glasgow both The Whisky Bond and SWG3 are providing studio and exhibition spaces to new generations of artists; and

and in Edinburgh, Summerhall is an exciting addition to the arts spaces available all year round in the capital;

With all these new kids on the block it is good to see the old school holding firm. In Glasgow, I was really impressed by the Tales of the City exhibitions at GOMA; Tan’s installation was particularly stunning.

At the CCA, I really enjoyed Olivia Plender’s exhibition Rise Early, Be Industrious;

as well as the several installations in the Sonica festival.

At Tramway,

Richard Hughes was showing some pretty discombobulating sculptures.

And in Edinburgh, Fruitmarket Gallery kept to its usual high standards;

with the thoughtfully curated Galapagos exhibition.
