A nation that doesn't know its art doesn't know itself. Thirty years ago, Scottish art was a barely credible notion. Indeed in the south it was a risible idea that the Scots could have any visual culture at all. Now it is universally accepted. That shift marks a profound change in our national self esteem. We now have grown up politics and can at least contemplate being a grown up nation again. So will Generation reflect this? It is billed as "one of the most ambitious celebrations of contemporary art ever held by a single country, recognising the huge international acclaim that artists working in Scotland have achieved over the last generation". I am not sure that "huge international acclaim" amounts to more than the dubious accolade of a few Turner Prize nominees, artists like Karla Black, Nathan Coley, Cathy Wilkes and a good few others whose reputation generally represents the triumph of hype over experience.

Real national acclaim might have been a more interesting proposition. There are some good artists involved in Generation, certainly. Nike Roshe Run Shoe Review Christine Borland, Graham Fagen, Jim Lambie, Toby Paterson, Callum Innes, to name just a few, are all serious and thoughtful artists. Innes is even a painter. Curiously Steven Campbell is included although he did some of his best work in the 1980s, well outside the show's self imposed (and meaningless) limit of Nike Roshe Run Buy Online Womens

altogether to do the same for him. An exhibition of Edith Tudor Hart's photographs at the Portrait Gallery brought us a brilliant photographer, but also showed how politically potent simple observation can be. In London, Ice Age Art quietly changed some of our most fundamental assumptions about art. Meanwhile 2014 will be the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and the seventh centenary of the Battle of Bannockurn. The Commonwealth Games will be held in Glasgow, but above all else, Scotland will decide its future with the referendum in September. The biggest project for the year is Generation, an exhibition of art in Scotland over the last 25 years. Sponsored by the NGS, Glasgow Life and Creative Scotland, this is to be spread all over the country, a national event. There is, however, no mention of the referendum in the publicity. You wouldn't expect the National Gallery to take sides, but there is surely reason to suppose that the artistic energy the show proposes to celebrate might have something to do with changes that have made the referendum even thinkable, whatever the outcome.
