NOW is a series of contemporary art exhibitions displayed across the ground floor at Modern One. At the centre of the fourth instalment is a major survey of work by the Turner Prize nominated artist Monster Chetwynd.

Known primarily for her exuberant performances that feature multiple props, costumes and collaborators, Chetwynd’s presentation includes new and existing collages, paintings and performance videos. The exhibition also brings together new and recent work by four other artists whose approach to making is connected to Chetwynd’s through a shared desire to challenge convention. These include new collages and paintings by Edinburgh based Moyna Flannigan, a video installation by Glasgow based Henry Coombes, and the first ever major presentations in Scotland of installation and video work by American Betye Saar and Egyptian Wael Shawky.

The NOW programme is being made possible thanks to the support of the National Galleries of Scotland Foundation, Kent and Vicki Logan, Walter Scott and Partners Limited, Robert and Nicky Wilson, The Ampersand Foundation and other donors who wish to remain anonymous.

Please note that room 3 shows a film which contains a scene of a sexual nature. It also explores themes including hunting.
