The gallery's latest exhibition, "That Petrol Emotion," also features work by four other Glasgow-based artists – Martin Boyce, Victoria Morton, Scott Myles and Michael Wilkinson. The group show has been organized and curated by The Modern Institute, which was founded in Glasgow in 1998 as a production and research gallery aiming to bring international artists to Scotland and promote local artists abroad.Each artist has been assigned a gallery. Lambie's installation pieces occupy the main hallway, the palace's largest space by far. Scattered at intervals across the space are five works from the artist's "Sonic Reducer" series – old LP covers encased in concrete blocks, their colorful spines protruding to form abstract patterns. Wilkinson has painted white bricks onto a series of square mirrors, removing one at a time in seemingly random patterns until, in the final work in the series, the whole mirror is revealed.It remains one of the most powerful works on show, however.The ultra-contemporary work might sit more naturally in a white cube-style space than the ornate, carpeted rooms of an Ottoman-era Beirut villa, but the exhibition provides an enjoyable opportunity for local audiences to discover work by some of Scotland's most talented artists.
