The best exhibitions
Killing Time Graham Fagan and Graham Eatough collaborate on an excellent project that brings together theatrical elements, installation, performance art and sculpture. The artists set up dramatic situations that references plays by Osborne, Beckett, Checkhov and Pinter, creating a fluid narrative that move through past, present and future. See opposite. Dundee Contemporary Art, Dundee, Sat 9 Sep-Sun 5 Nov 2006.
Torsten Lauschmann Why create bland signature pieces when you can pull together sculpture, paintings, drawings and films that follow there own successful stylistic agenda? Glasgow-based Lauschmann’s new exhibition at Mary Mary creates tenuous links between apparent opposites, shattering both positions into smithereens. See review, page 93. Mary Mary, Glasgow, until Fri 8 Oct.
Girlhood and Boypower Last chance to see this exhibition of paintings and prints by a large array of international artists, exploring the theme of childhood in slightly unsettling works that fold nightmares into daydreams. The exhibition includes work by Herman Bas, Enrico David, Christopher Orr, Kiki Smith and Louise Bourgeois, amongst many others. Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, until Sat 30 Sep.
Callum Innes An mini-retrospective exhibition of paintings by the Edinburgh-born artist, bringing together work that examines minimalist themes such as identified and isolated forms, repetition, resonance and what the artist calls ‘monologues’ - terms associated with particular formal experiments within Innes’ oeuvre. See preview page 93. Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, until 19 Nov.
