PRO­JECTABIL­ITY Mono, 12 King’s Court, King Street, Glas­gow noon-1am (Sun­day noon-6pm) 0141 552 9458 www.mono­rail­mu­sic.com It’s been sug­gested that the ther­apy as­pect of Project Abil­ity’s work means its ex­hi­bi­tions are not al­ways as­sessed with the rigour ap­plied to other gal­leries, but it is equally true that the stan­dard it shows is of­ten very high. This sea­son it had work in its own gallery and the Auld Kirk Mu­seum in Kirk­in­til­loch, but the last one is at the city’s hippest record shop/bar-cafe through the good of­fices of Stephen Pas­tel. Last chance to see it this week­end, but Satur­day runs into Sun­day at Mono. NORTH­ERNCITY(BE­TWEEN LIGH­TAND­DARK) The Light­house, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glas­gow 10.30am-5pm 0141 221 6362 www.the­light­house.co.uk Jekyll and Hyde, Con­fes­sions of a Jus­ti­fied Sin­ner, and The Tes­ta­ment of Gideon Mack frac­tured through the dish of the Cam­era Ob­scura. Sort of. Artists Dalziel & Scul­lion, Nathan Co­ley and Vic­to­ria Clare Bernie team up with ar­chi­tec­tural prac­tices to ex­plore the du­al­ity of Auld Reekie. There is a nice con­ceit in the for­mer home of the Glas­gow Her­ald hous­ing the out­come of th­ese “con­ver­sa­tions”, as they’ve been de­scribed, about the schiz­o­phrenic char­ac­ter of Ed­in­burgh. The show runs un­til March 4 (al­though it is closed to­mor­row un­tilWed­nes­day) and then goes off to the Pala­gio di Parte Guelfa in Florence. DOUGLASGORDON: SU­PER­HU­MANAT­U­RAL In­ver­leith House, Ed­in­burgh 10am-3.30pm, 0131 552 7171 Far too big to take in on one day, the ret­ro­spec­tive of the work of one of Scot­land’s most in­ter­na­tion­ally suc­cess­ful con­tem­po­rary artists is also oc­cu­py­ing the Na­tional Gal­leries’ Royal Scot­tish Academy build­ing on the Mound. But who wants to fight their way through Ed­in­burgh’s Hog­manay rev­ellers? On un­til Jan­uary 14, the In­ver­leith ex­hibits are a com­plete col­lec­tion of Gor­don‘s wall texts in the for­mer home of the Scot­tish Na­tional Gallery of Mod­ern Art it­self, the 1997 video in­stal­la­tion Be­tween Dark­ness and Light (Af­ter William Blake) in the Cale­do­nian Hall, and a new piece, Plato’s Cave in a for­mer wash­house build­ing.
