l New exhibitions from the £26.5 million collection of leading art dealer and collector Anthony d'Offay will take place in the Scottish Borders and Morayshire.

The collection, bought for the nation in 2008 by the National Galleries of Scotland and the Tate, is being shown across the UK for the fifth time in 2013.

Sixteen venues will show works of art from the unique collection which totals more than 700 works by leading contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Mapplethorpe, Gilbert and George, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Andy Warhol.

Titled Artist Rooms, the collection has a remit to be shown in galleries across the country, and next year's shows will feature exhibition in Edinburgh, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Falkirk, Findhorn, and Galashiels.

By the end of 2013, art from the collection will have been shown in 54 museums and galleries nationwide.
