O Paoiozzi at 80 Until Sun 3| Oct. Free. Arranged in chronological order. the exhibition is a dizzying array of the talent and intellect that Paolozzi invested in his work. He took the tenets of surrealism and extended them to help create and develop Pop Art. The collages and screen prints on display are testament to the inspiration he derived frotn popular culture and his determination that there is no limit to the imagination. The central motifs in Paolozzi‘s work emerge as soldiers. clocks and space travel; today they produce a potent nostalgia. Paolozzi was able to not only deconstruct the barrier between high and low art but also the human body to expose its frailty. Dynamic. inspiring and faultless. See Hitlist.

Hanneline Visnes: Ring Around Paradise Square L'ntil Sat 10 Jul. An unnerving first solo show from this Norwegian-born artist based in Glasgow. In the Hmvers appears to be a delicate floral pattern taken from a Persian tile and looks like a simple celebration of how the sacred is still present in the everyday in the religious East but is more than that. Hidden within one repeat of the pattern are a huddle of eyes peering back. Throughout this fascinating exhibition. art as decoration and art as a release of potentially destructive forces are juxtaposed in frequently shocking fashion. The Paradise Square of the title. incidentally. is in Baghdad. It was the home of the largest statue of Saddam Hussein until it was torn down. LAST CHANCE TO SEE.

Jill Bennett‘s work focuses on the pigeon houses in Greece and works hard to capture the atmosphere and tonalin of the area. [Essentially the whole exhibit lacks
