The celebration of 25 years of contemporary art in Scotland continues to enthral visitors

GENERATION, the project showcasing the best of contemporary art in Scotland over the past 25 years, is proving to be a huge success. Almost 400,000 visitors have so far enjoyed the exhibitions presented by the National Galleries of Scotland and Glasgow Life. The ambitious programme, of over 60 exhibitions, has been on show throughout the length and breadth of Scotland, from Stromness to Berwick-upon-Tweed.

There is still lots more to see with Scotland + Venice: Duncan Campbell at The Common Guild, Kate Davis, HOUSE WORK CASTLE MILK WOMAN HOUSE at Glasgow Women’s Library and Toby Paterson at Gracefield Arts Centre all opening later this year. Kenny Hunter, The Singing of Swans, continues at Paxton House and there’s still time to catch Louise Hopkins’s exhibition, Black Sea, White Sea, at Linlithgow Burgh Halls. The Travelling Gallery continues its journey throughout the Highlands and Western Isles in September.

GENERATION is a landmark series of exhibitions that explores the remarkable development of contemporary art in Scotland over the last 25 years. It has included exhibitions from the islands to the Highlands, from Orkney to the Borders and from Stornoway to Dumfries. Featuring works by over 100 artists in over 60 galleries, exhibition spaces and venues, GENERATION is one of the most ambitious celebrations of contemporary art ever held by a single nation.

The programme of exhibitions brings together historically significant works as well as new works by both established and emerging artists. In addition to showing existing works held in Scottish and international public and private collections, there are recreations of significant shows as well as a number of major new commissions.

To accompany GENERATION, two publications have been produced. The GENERATION Guide and Reader are packed with information about the artists, artworks and events that have made the last 25 years such a remarkable time for visual arts in Scotland. These are essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary art; both are available to purchase from the National Galleries of Scotland’s online shop.

GENERATION is being delivered through a partnership between the National Galleries of Scotland and Glasgow Life, supported by Creative Scotland, and is part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.
