Glasgow in Print

Glasgow in Print at Glasgow Print Studio is pretty much what it says it is: an exhibition of prints of Glasgow. They have been made for the show in a wide variety of print media by an invited group of 14 members of the studio. The imagery is vivid and diverse, but nevertheless much of it is recognisably Glasgow, if occasionally seen from an unusual angle.

Glasgow Print Studio, until 30 September, 0141-552 0704

POP

3D Festival

The 3D Festival is a two-day celebration on Dundee’s Waterfront to celebrate the opening of the stunning Kengo Kuma-designed V&A Museum. Friday night of 3D – Dundee, design and discovery, since you ask – will be headlined by party veterans Primal Scream, pictured, who will also be unveiling a new collaboration with their old chum Jim Lambie, known for his multi-coloured artworks. Elsewhere on the bill, rising pop troubadour Lewis Capaldi joins a predominantly hometown line-up, including Danny Wilson mainman Gary Clark, upcoming Dundonian singer/songwriter Be Charlotte and Andrew Wasylyk, the solo guise of Hazey Janes frontman Andrew Mitchell.

Slessor Gardens, Dundee, 14 & 15 September, www.vam.ac.uk
