The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art showcases a series of important installations from the last 25 years including Ross Sinclair's Real Life Rocky Mountain from 1996, Graham Fagen's Peek-A-Jobby from 1998 and Turner Prize-winner Simon Starling's Burn-Time from 2000. 

Meanwhile, works by Victoria Morton, Alison Watt, Julie Roberts, Lucy McKenzie, Kate Davis, Charles Avery and Jonathan Owen demonstrate the continuing vitality of painting and drawing in Scotland, with sculpture, painting, collage and printmaking also represented.

Douglas Gordon’s celebrated 24 Hour Psycho is among the video installations on show.

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.
