Hitlist - the best exhibitions
Frances Richardson: Internus Richardson’s sculptural installations present a vision of the emotional dereliction that lies beneath the surface of contemporary consumerist culture. Internus draws on elements from a 15th century painting of The Archangel Raphael Saving an Attempted Suicide by Neri di Bicci. Corn Exchange Gallery, Edinburgh, until Thu 4 Oct.
Picasso on Paper An exhibition of drawings, prints and illustrated books spanning the career of the 20th century’s most important artist. Picasso’s early work gave artists who followed him a route into pure abstraction, with his later surrealist-inspired works demonstrating a mastery of the human form and his inexhaustible artistic vision. Dean Gallery, Edinburgh, until Sun 23 Sep.
David Batchelor: Unplugged Multicoloured, glowing plastic constructions fill the galleries at the Talbot Rice. Batchelor creates neo-pop installations that challenge our ‘chromophobia’. Concerned with ideas of urbanism and consumption, the artist and author has scoured the Pound Shops of East London to create a gaudy, Technicolor grotto. Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh, until Sat 29 Sep.
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 surveillance ‘Seen’ and ‘Taken’. CCA, Glasgow, until Sat 15 Sep.
