28th June to 25th January 2015 Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

Ahead of the Scottish vote of independence Scotland is showing off some of its best contemporary art from the last 25years.

The ground-breaking exhibition will be shown multiple venues: the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

Featuring the work of 30 artists, the exhibition will include existing and new works, alongside the restaging of several significant exhibitions of the period. It celebrates the diversity, richness and power of the work that artists have made during the period, and which continues to be produced today.

The exhibition will feature new sculptural installations by Karla Black and Claire Barclay; paintings by Victoria Morton, Alison Watt and Callum Innes; immersive room-sized installations by Ross Sinclair, Graham Fagen and Martin Boyce; a room of sculptures and prints by David Shrigley; and film and video works by Douglas Gordon, Luke Fowler and Rosalind Nashashibi.
