Scottish National Gallery brings together the work of 30 artists; showing brand new commissions alongside the restaging of significant exhibitions from the last 25 years.

These include Steven Campbell's seminal show On Form and Content, which first opened at the Third Eye Centre in 1990 and Turner Prize-winner Martin Boyce’s 2002 Tramway show Our Love is Like the Flowers, the Rain, the Sea and the Hours.

Meanwhile new sculptural installations by Karla Black and David Shrigley have been produced in response to the gallery’s neo-classical spaces.

The display forms part of a trio of exhibitions being held across the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
