This major exhibition by contemporary artist Jock McFadyen displays new and existing paintings, alongside works from the City Art Centre’s collection of historic and contemporary Scottish art.


Timed to mark his 70th birthday, this major exhibition by contemporary artist Jock McFadyen displays new and existing paintings, alongside works from the City Art Centre’s collection of historic and contemporary Scottish art. Over the last year McFadyen has regularly visited the picture stores to carefully select works for the show. His choices range from ‘old favourites’ by renowned Scottish artists, to ones that have rarely been seen by the public.

Through a series of fascinating pairings, the exhibition encourages viewers to take a closer look. Works that might initially seem unrelated reveal unexpected connections and relationships. Some of these juxtapositions are witty; some are striking or surprising. By showcasing these artworks side by side, the exhibition aims to highlight common visual threads that connect all pictures, confounding the traditional boundaries of period, style and artistic posture. It places the collection and McFadyen’s work in a fresh and exciting context.
