The Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art has announced further details of its shows this spring, from April 4-21.

The programme is being curated for the first time by its new director, Sarah McCrory.

At Tramway Galleries 1 and 5, Michael Smith will present his first solo exhibition in a UK institution entitled Videos and Miscellaneous Stuff From Storage (Pt. 2). The exhibition will showcase a series of his most important works from the last three decades exploring the medium of television.

In Tramway's T2 space, Bedwyr Williams will present Echt, a film installation which takes the form of a full size diorama, depicting an encounter in a dark forest clearing.

At GOMA, Aleksandra Domanovic will present her first solo exhibition in the UK, which will explore a "marginalised representation of women within popular science fiction and time travel". Domanovic will install a series of large scale sculptural banners printed with images depicting motifs and characters stemming from her research.

On the first floor of GOMA, Sue Tompkins will present a new performance and a new suite of fabric pieces, paintings and works on newsprint as part of her exhibition Come to Ozark.

The Glasgow School of Art's Reid Gallery, a purpose-built exhibition space on the ground floor of the new Reid Building, will feature work by four of the GSA's alumni - Briggs & Cole, Raydale Dower and Heaven Baek - to respond to the architecture of the space.

The show features both physical and digital works and the exhibition runs from March 22 to May 4 and is part of the 2014 Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, or GI, programme.

Marra tribute in pipeline

Resolis Hall in Cromarty is to stage a Highland tribute to the late singer-songwriter Michael Marra on March 29.

Details are under wraps but organisers at the venue, which hosted The Herald Angel-winning Marra's final live performance in 2012, have plans including a souvenir programme featuring recollections from Marra's admirers, and expect to make further announcements soon. All proceeds will go towards trying to realise Marra's dream of bringing a branch of music for children organisation El Sistema Scotland to his home town, Dundee.
