Cunningham and Cage: No Fixed Points An exhibition of drawings by choreographer Merce Cunningham and composer John Cage. This legendary couple dramatically changed the contemporary dance and music scene in America, creating highly influential, provocative yet essentially abstract works that refused to act as royal roads into the artist’s psyche. See preview Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, until Sun 8 Jul.
Rodderick Buchanan: Histrionics Photography, film and wall-based work examining the relationship between Catholic and Protestant, Celtic and Rangers fans in Glasgow. Buchanan uses his personal experience as part of a ‘mixed couple’ to examine his and his wife’s genealogy, demonstrating their similar socio-economic backgrounds. Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, until Sun 28 Oct.
The Scottish Show The work of 34 of Scotland’s best up and coming designers (hairdressers, cabinet makers, architects, ceramicists, clothes designers, etc) forms part of the Six Cities Design Festival. Highlights include work by Alex Milton, Leigh Ferguson, Hill, Jephson and Robb, and Marianne Anderson, with most of the exhibits already feeling very domesticated and familiar. The Lighthouse, Glasgow, until Sun 12 Aug.
David Musgrave The London-based artist’s work continues to examine Being and Nothingness, enormous themes that collide on his canvases and in his drawings, leaving representational, indexical figures where objects used to be. He continues his ‘Television’ series with paintings and works on paper that translate one form of representation into another, dissolving the surety of everyday reality in the process. See preview. Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow, until Sat 30 Jun.
