Hit List: Visual Art

  • The List
  • 1 August 2007

Now I Know My ABCs A confident first exhibition in a new space outside the city centre, of work by recently graduated artists from Scotland’s art schools and colleges. Work on show continues the perennial fascination with modernism and its undoing. +44 141 @ Studio Warehouse, Glasgow, until Thu 3 Aug.

Roderick Buchanan – Histrionics
A series of works by Glasgow-based artist Roderick Buchanan, examining the city’s sectarian divide. Buchanan uses photography and film to demonstrate the similarities between both sides, using his own personal history as a way of understanding the long history of hate. Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, until Sun 28 Oct.

David Rokeby – Silicon Remembers Carbon The Canadian-born installation artist brings a collection of interactive works together to create his first major Scottish show and retrospective at the CCA. Work on show includes the pioneering sound installation ‘Very Nervous System’, and his exploration of CCTV and surveliance ‘Seen’ and ‘Taken’. CCA, Glasgow, Sat 4 Aug–Sat 15 Sep.

Alexandre Perigot – Pipedreams The first in a series of four linked exhibitions, ‘Pipedream’ continues Perigot’s fascination with physically immersing the viewer in a visually and aurally powerful site, forcing us to reassess our passive relationship with star making and spectacle. The artist has installed a life-sized version of Elvis’ home Graceland in the cavernous space. Tramway, Glasgow, until Sun 5 Aug.


Glasgow artist Roderick Buchanan's latest exhibition is a response to the sectarian divide that rips right through (usually the poorest) streets of Glasgow. Buchanan uses film, graphs and evocative, loaded music and images, forcing the spectator to remember how real this intolerance is.
