• 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’. CCA, Glasgow, until Sat 15 Sep.
• Roderick Buchanan: Histrionics A series of works by Glasgow-based artist Buchanan, examining the city’s sectarian divide. Buchanan uses photography and film to demonstrate the similarities between both sides (Catholic and Protestant), using his own personal history as a way of understanding the long history of hate that still runs through the city. Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, until Sun 28 Oct.
• Sally Osborn: Oh Ha Hmm A new installation of work by the Glasgow-based artist. Osborn’s work examines the fabric of simple, anti-sculptural materials such as rice paper and metal foil, in work that brings together representational and non-representational elements, recording the way one medium both distorts and enhances the qualities in another. Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow, until Sat 15 Sep.
• Clare Stephenson Described previously (and ungenerously) as ‘a writer writing through writer’s block’, Glasgow based Stephenson’s work resembles a painted cubist collage and can almost be understood as trompe l’oeil, with differing realities and spacial configurations flattened by either the pencil point or the tip of the paint brush. Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow, Sat 18 Aug–Sat 22 Sep.
