LITTLE BROTHER’S BIG BROTHER Words: Artbug A
If the National Galleries of Scotland were put into the Big Brother house. the National on the MOund w0u|d unquestionably be on the rich side. the Portrait Gallery reliant on votes and the Gallery of Modern Art stuck firmly on the poor side. The three galleries receive a purchase grant from the Scottish ExeCutive which is

then ‘shared' among the institutions. well in theory at least.
However. if recent history is anything to go by. when Sir Timothy Clifford wants something - three pert burns. a heavily restored Botticelli or some new medals — that ‘sharing. caring' ideal goes Out of the window. leaving the others with little or no purchasing power. a point more than illustrated by the Modern Art gallery's latest offering New.
New is a selection of works made by British artists since 1990 which have been acquired by the gallery. with the exception of Tony Cragg's piece which is over 12 years old. and ‘old' is how this show looks and feels. The entrance to the exhibition is a clutter of prints published by the Paragon Press which amount to no more than a collection of autographs by just about anybody connected with the YBA house. Artists books are displayed like trophies in museum cases and self-conscious British attempts at the much hyped 908 fashion 'neurotic realist' also make an appearance.
Hirst. Borland. Wearing. Freud. Davie. etc all feature in the exhibition but what comes up time and again as you wander through IS how often the work purchased seems lightweight. I know big brother has been in charge of the purse strings. but I can't help 3 feeling that it w0ttld have been better to buy less and concentrate on quality rather than to put on display such a lack of purchasing power.
