The Best Exhibitions
Nick Evans: Rational Slab A group of large sculptures, developing themes and techniques which the Glasgow-based artist had developed whilst being artist at residence at Tate St Ives. The sculptures continue Evans’ examination of philosophically dialectical processes, with works that still manage to have a sense of humour. See review. Mary Mary, Glasgow, until Sat 14 Apr.
Martin Boyce The artist examines the tradition of making sculpture for foyers and hallways, creating black metal abstract wall construction that also act as light fixtures, and an elegant partition wall, with similar forms attached, that gently but surely controls the movements of the gallery visitor. The Modern Institute, Glasgow, until Sat 31 Mar.
Kate Dove and Victoria Morton: Sun by Ear An exhibition that brings together multicoloured and luminescent work by two well-respected artists who could be said to pull together and deconstruct some of modern art’s tenants. The gallery is filled with large installed paintings and enormous projected animations. See review. Tramway, Glasgow, until Sun 1 Apr.
Rob Churm An exhibition of line drawings by the vocalist from Glasgow’s ‘Park Attack’, taking the city’s vibrant music scene for inspiration. Churm presents his poster and flyer designs for clubs and gigs alongside pieces that employ similar monochromatic, graphic techniques, but work as ‘functionless’ art objects in their own right. See preview. Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow, until Sat 7 Apr.
