Petit Futé's opinion on SCOTTISH NATIONAL GALLERY OF MODERN ART

Vintage plate 2020

Opened in 1960, the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art is the temple of modern and contemporary art in Scotland. It consists of two buildings along Belford Road. Information is available in French and also adapted to families, with activities, installations and workshops designed specifically to introduce young audiences to art. The most "hip" or "connected" will download the dedicated free application: Smartify. By scanning the work, you will read a lot of additional information about the artist, the context of creation...

In Modern One, all the big names from the end of the 19th century to the present day are present: Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Louise Bourgeois, Damien Hirst, Douglas Gordon, Anthony Gormley and Bill Viola. The whole on two floors and 22 rooms, with a shop and a small but very popular café.

The Modern Two is dedicated to the surrealists with René Magritte, Salvador Dali or Alberto Giacometti. Another room houses a reproduction of Eduardo Paolozzi's studio and one can admire his famous Vulcan sculpture of more than 7 metres. It is also here that the temporary exhibitions (sometimes paying exhibitions, online programming) can be found, as well as a library and a second café.

The gardens between the two galleries are themselves the work of Charles Jenks and host the works of sculptors such as Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Rachel Whiteread and Nathan Coley.

Les sacs à dos à la main please
De belles toiles, dommage que je ne connaisse pas plus l'art pour profiter au mieux des expo!
Une sortie à garder sous le coude en cas de mauvais temps autrement.

J'aime beaucoup ce musée d'Edimbourg consacré à l'art moderne. Les oeuvres présentées changent car il y a 3 ans c'était un tout autre musée que j'avais visité! Cette année il y a une grande partie consacrée à Roy Lichstenstein. L'entrée du musée est gratuite. Dans la deuxième partie du musée de l'autre côté de la route, il y a des expositions temporaires qui changent plusieurs fois dans l'année et qui sont par contre payantes.
