After returning from years of war coverage, Peter van Agtmael tries to piece together the memory, identity, race, class, and family, in a landscape which has become as surreal as the war he left behind.
The Modern Institute was founded in Glasgow in 1997. The gallery works with 42 internationally established and emerging artists including Martin Boyce, Jim Lambie, Richard Wright, Anne Collier, Cathy Wilkes, Simon Starling, Urs Fischer, Luke Fowler and Nicolas Party.
Working on both public and private shows with the artists worldwide, The Modern Institute hosts a yearly programme across its two spaces in Glasgow, as well as participating in major art fairs. The gallery regularly curates projects internationally and annually publishes artist books and monographs.
