Ray Harryhausen - Titan of Cinema

Ray Harryhausen was one of stop motion’s most influential special effects experts. He began making films in the 1950s and changed the face of modern movie making. This exhibition is the largest and widest-ranging of Harryhausen’s work – it even features newly restored and previously unseen material from his archive – and traces his career on films such as Jason and the Argonauts, the Sinbad films of the 1950s and 1970s, One Million Years B.C. and Mighty Joe Young.

May-August. Tickets from £12 (booking required). Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two), 75 Belford Road, Edinburgh, EH4 3DR, www.nationalgalleries.org/exhibition/ray-harryhausen-titan-cinema

Another Time, Another Place

This is a showcase of the 12 paintings of Victoria Crowe that went on to inspire 12 poems by Christine De Luca to form a really interesting conversation between an artist and a poet. Crowe’s works represent a return to her studio after having to put her practice on pause, and examine the idea of finding the profound outside your window – a subject which we have all become very familiar with over the last year.

10-29 May. Free. The Scottish Gallery, 6 Dundas Street, Edinburgh New Town, EH3 6HZ, scottish-gallery.co.uk/exhibitions/another-time-another-place
