104 THE LIST 1 Feb–31 Mar 2020
GLASGOW INTERNATIONAL 2020 The ninth edition of Glasgow’s biannual contemporary art festival has as its theme Attention: how do we stay focused on art, others and society in an era of mass distraction? An extensive cross-city list of exhibiting artists includes a Director’s programme featuring Carol Rhodes, Yuko Mohri, Bodys Isek Kingelez, France-Lise McGurn, Duncan Campbell and many others. ■ Various venues, Glasgow, Fri 24 Apr–Sun 10 May, glasgowinternational.org
RAY HARRYHAUSEN: TITAN OF CINEMA Arguably the most anticipated exhibition being held in Scotland this year, this extensive archival display of work from the master of stop-motion cinema is the ﬁ rst such exhibition to make extensive use of the late Harryhausen’s own archive. In his 100th birthday year, the making of classics like Jason and the Argonauts and One Million Years BC will be explored, as well as his inﬂ uence upon luminaries like Peter Jackson and Tim Burton. ■ Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two), Edinburgh, Sat 23 May–Sun 25 Oct, nationalgalleries. org TRACEY EMIN AND RACHEL MACLEAN Although full details are unclear, this year’s summer reopening of the Jupiter Artland sculpture park should be a bigger draw than ever, with Tracey Emin revealing a new series of paintings, drawings and bronze sculpture work for her ﬁ rst major Scottish exhibition in 12 years. A new outdoor installation by ﬁ lmmaker Rachel Maclean will also be seen as part of Edinburgh Art Festival. ■ Jupiter Artland, Wilkieston, near Edinburgh, from Jun, jupiterartland. org
KARLA BLACK The ﬁ rst selected survey of work by Glasgow-based Turner Prize nominee Karla Black threatens to be overshadowed by what’s going on in the gallery around it, with the
Fruitmarket’s £3.75m expansion into the building next door expected to be complete for the summer. This should still be one of the exhibition highlights of August in Edinburgh, however. ■ Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Aug, fruitmarket.co.uk TITIAN: LOVE, DESIRE, DEATH Following its spring run at the National Gallery in London, this exhibition of work by the 16th-century Venetian painter Titian is sure to be a summer blockbuster in Edinburgh. As its highlight, it promises to reunite his ‘poesie’ – ﬁ ve large-scale mythological paintings commissioned by Philip II of Spain and completed between 1550 and 1562 – for the ﬁ rst time since 1704. ■ Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, Sat 11 Jul–Sun 27 Sep, nationalgalleries.org
DOUGLAS GORDON: K.364 Named after Mozart’s K364 concerto, this ﬁ lm by the Glaswegian artist Douglas Gordon – whose work includes 24-Hour Psycho and Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait – has been seen before, including at the Gagosian in 2011. Yet this chronicle of a train journey, taken by two Israeli musicians through the historically fraught landscape of Poland and Germany, is making its debut in a UK public gallery here. ■ Dundee Contemporary Arts, Sat 11 Apr–Sun 19 Jul, dca.org.uk
MARY QUANT Travelling to Dundee after its run at V&A London, this major gallery exhibit at V&A Dundee will tell the story of how Mary Quant became a deﬁ nitive fashion design icon amid the swinging 1960s in London. Running concurrently at the Dovecot in Edinburgh, Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant tells the wider story of the period through an exhibition featuring Quant, Terence Conran and Bernard and Laura Ashley. ■ Mary Quant, V&A Dundee, from Sat 4 Apr, vam.ac.uk; Mid- Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant, Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, from Fri 3 Apr, dovecotstudios.com
