A major new exhibition of sculptural works from the collection, alongside important works on loan. Featured artists include Rodin, Degas, Hepworth, Moore, Giacometti, Duchamp, Hirst, Lucas and others, along with photographic and film documentation. Ron Mueck's enormous A Girl returns to the Gallery from its world tour.
Join us this winter in celebrating sculpture in all its many forms at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. The whole of the gallery will showcase a breathtaking variety of works, ranging from Impressionist masterpieces by Rodin and Degas to cutting edge art by Damien Hirst and this year's Turner Prize nominees Martin Boyce and Karla Black. You can also see works by the biggest names in British sculpture like Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. The centrepiece of the show is Ron Mueck's monumental work A Girl, back with us after a worldwide tour. Don't miss the chance to see an outstanding work which brought record numbers of visitors to the Galleries last time it was on display.
There are fantastic events and exhibitions happening all over the country during the Year of Creative Scotland. Look out for exciting new initiatives to complement a fantastic and enhanced, year-round cultural programme that shows off our creativity at its best – contemporary, international and reflecting the joy that a vibrant cultural life brings to our communities.
