The best exhibitions
• Alexandre Perigot: Pipedream The Parisian artist creates a life-size reconstruction of Elvis’ house Gracelands, creating a stage for various performances and events - a monument to those few short minutes in which The King touched down in Prestwick airport as a GI. See interview. Tramway, Glasgow, until Sun 5 Aug.
• Tender Scene: Group Show Four artists, including Alex Pollard, one of the 2005 Venice Biennale contributors who curates the work of fellow Glasgow-based artists Clare Stephenson, Fiona Jardine and Gregor Wright. The artists will collaborate to create an environment that focuses on drawing and sculptural installation/interventions. See preview. Changing Room Gallery, Stirling, until Sat 11 Aug.
• The Scottish Show: Group 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. Some of the 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.
• Richard Long: Walking and Marking One of Britain’s most successful land artists, Richard Long fills the SNGMA with photographs, drawings, paintings and text pieces (among other works), that record his enduring fascination with the surface of the planet and human beings’ presence on it, with the artist acting as a symbolic figure for the way we leave our mark when we pass over it. See preview. National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, until Sun 21 Oct.
