VISUAL ARTS: PICK OF THE WEEK

Click to follow
The Independent Culture
The Museum of Modern Art, Glasgow

Glasgow's new museum opened to the public last Saturday, with a broad mix in which pictures by Beryl Cook rub shoulders with dot paintings by Australian Bushmen artists; and Elizabeth Blackadder hangs alongside Bruce McLean. What will be most interesting will be the way in which this eclectic collection is presented.

Royal Exchange Sq, Glasgow (0141-649 7151)

Marlene Dumas

The first chance for some years to see a representative selection of works by this acclaimed Dutch artist. Dumas plunders the imagery newspapers, magazines and Renaissance altarpieces. Her themes are variously race, sex and violence, addressed through a mass of miniature portraits. Engaging, disturbing and often simply beautiful.

Tate, London SW1 (0171-887 8000) to 30 June
