The best exhibitions
• Alexandre Perigot: Pipedreams Silver scaffolding delineates the outer edges of a diminutive mansion, bringing Elvis’ Graceland to Glasgow. Alexandre Perigot presents an installation that subtly comments on celebrity, collective memory and the political relationship between America and Great Britain. See review. Tramway, Glasgow, until Sun 5 Aug.
• Pale Carnage This exhibition of 12 international artists examines beauty, cruelty, desire, decadence, voyeurism and violence. The work focuses on aesthetic and philosophical trends from the late 19th and early 20th century, demonstrating the fascistic politics that can be found at the core of modernism and classicism. See review. Dundee Contemporary Art, Dundee, until Sun 2 Sep.
• Richard Long: Walking and Marking Installation, photography, maps and paintings recording Long’s walking trips around Britain and abroad. For this show the artist will also exhibit new works that relate directly to the landscape around Edinburgh, bringing together and utilising materials from the land, creating stone circles and muddy hand-print works that record the artist’s presence. Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, until Sun 21 Oct.
• Bevan Quinn Another excellent exhibition in the South Side Studio’s Fridge gallery. Quinn has created hard edged, shaped canvases that take off where Stella got stuck. The use of neon and Perspex literalise the fourth dimension that modernist masters gestured towards, creating works that are crisper than the crumbling originals. Fridge Gallery, Glasgow, until 29 Jul.
