France-Lise McGurn
Aloud

France-Lise McGurn’s newly commissioned installation draws on her personal experiences of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum; the hours she spent there as a child and then later as an adult, inhabiting but also observing. In particular, Albert Moore’s well-loved painting, Reading Aloud (1884), has provided a point of departure for McGurn: especially the very specific positioning and postures of the models, its textures and ambiguous lack of urgency or context.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, till 1 June 2022

Eva Rothschild

Inside The Modern Institute’s gallery on Aird’s Lane and expanding onto the green space outside are new works by Eva Rothschild that extend the artist’s interest in reinvigorating conventional sculpture. Rothschild, who represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale in 2019, makes work that displays close attentiveness to contemporary relationships between society and the individual.

Denise Ferreira da Silva, Arjuna Neuman
Soot Breath / Corpus Infinitum

Soot Breath // Corpus Infinitum is a newly commissioned film and installation by Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva. Against and instead of apprehension, it fosters an image of existence as otherwise: one that is not driven or predicated by predatory desire and lethal abstraction or total extraction and its articulations as ethnography, border regimes, slavery, sexual violence, global trade and mining.
Centre for Contemporary Arts. till 24 July

Dan Walwin
Like clock

Dan Walwin creates works that attend closely to the observed patterns and rhythms of their subjects, as ways of finding keys to their operating logic. These function by combining video, sound and sculpture to channel visceral sensation, playing with the scale and dissonance of forces and forms.
David Dale Gallery and Studios, till 31 July
