The new Fruitmarket Gallery will open with a major exhibition of work by Glasgow-based artist and Turner prize nominated Karla Black across both the exhibition galleries and the new warehouse space.
An exhibition with works by Sara Barker, Nina Beier, Karla Black, Carol Bove, Ben Cain, Varda Caivano, Luis Camnitzer, Marieta Chirulescu, Keith Coventry, Tony Cragg, Jason Dodge, Alex Dordoy, Nikolas Gambaroff, Gary Hume, Ian Law, George Henry Longly, Marie Lund, Benoît Maire, Victor Man, Kris Martin, Katy Moran, Anselm Reyle, Manuela Ribadeneira, Gerhard Richter, Pietro Roccasalva, David Schutter, Adam Thompson, Lesley Vance, Gary Webb, Lawrence Weiner and Alison Wilding.
A House of Leaves will provide the first opportunity to discover the largest group of works from DRAF’s collection.
The main idea I keep coming back to is the removal of the artist as a centre point of the artwork.

What art offers that design and architecture don’t, is some kind of ’comment’, ’critique’ – messages, to use a simple word – about our society and how it should be.
