More about

At Modern One, explore sculptures by major artists such as Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Rachel Whiteread and Barbara Hepworth outside and a superb collection of art ranging from the 1900s to the present day within. Discover the dramatic lawn at the front of Modern One, designed by landscape architect Charles Jencks. The collection includes works by Matisse, Picasso, Vuillard, and Dix. It also includes a world-famous collection of Surrealism and Dada as well as a superb selection of paintings by Scottish artists such as Peploe, Fergusson, Douglas Gordon and Steven Campbell. Café Modern One serves lunches, incredible cakes and delicious coffee. Modern Two is home to 'The Stairwell Project', a large- scale, permanent work by 2009 Turner Prize- winner Richard Wright. Comprising several thousand individually hand-painted forms, the piece is one of Wright’s most complex and ambitious works to date in the world. Modern Two is also home to a detailed recreation of Eduard Paolozzi's studio on permanent display. Paolozzi's towering sculpture, 'Vulcan', dominates Paolozzi's Kitchen, our café named after the artist.
