ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses tips some sculpture and installation exhibitions.

Thomas Houseago – The Beat Of The Show (pictured)
I love an outdoor sculpture exhibition; there’s something that seems to me really right about viewing that kind of art in the outdoors. What’s more, this particular show is taking place at the Botanic Gardens, a place I really like. The Leeds born artist creates striking, modern pieces using a variety of media, and I am quite anxious to see some of them face to face, as it were. In the flesh. Or rather, in the wood, plaster, clay, iron or steel.
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, 1 Aug – 4 Sep, 10.00am – 5.45pm, free, fpp191.

This sculpture show is at another one of my favourite Edinburgh locations, that’s the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, a place I have enjoyed much whiling in over the years. This, happily, is also an outdoor exhibition, of work from this renowned artist, currently director of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
Scottish National Gallery Of Modern Art, 1 Aug – 4 Sep, times vary, £5.00 – £7.00, fpp191.

400 Women
This is a conceptual installation from artist Tamsyn Challenger, a response to the famously unsolved rape and murder of thousands of women in the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez. The work includes contributions from 200 international artists, and will go on display in a dilapidated school.
Scottish Cannongate Venture, 4 Aug – 4 Sep (not 8, 15, 22, 29), 11.00am – 6.00pm, free, fpp189.
