Rodney Graham: That’s Not Me, Baltic, Gateshead
Filling the two main gallery spaces at Baltic, this beautifully presented show is split between a bright and light-filled third floor gallery packed with the Canadian artist’s signature light-box pieces, and a darkly atmospheric fourth floor featuring film works made between 1994–2010. Playful, witty, complex and teeming with art historical references both in terms of form and content, this is a busy and engaging retrospective that includes 2003’s cinematically poetic celebration of obsolescence, Rheinmetal/Victoria 8, and 2000’s Aberdeen, a soundtracked projection work featuring 80 slides taken in Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain’s home town.

Until 11 June 2017. www.balticmill.com
William E Jones, The Modern Institute, Osborne Street, Glasgow
For his second solo exhibition with the gallery, the Los Angeles-based artist presents his new 30-minute film, Fall into Ruin, which tells the story of his relationship with the late Greek art dealer and collector Alexander Iolas. Known for his work with the Surrealists and Andy Warhol, Iolas retired in the 1980s and died from AIDs-related illness in 1987 in the city of Athens, where Fall into Ruin is set. The exhibition also includes a body of photographic work by Jones.
Until 20 May 2017. www.themoderninstitute.com
