Founded in 2004, Edinburgh Art Festival is the platform for the visual arts at the heart of Edinburgh’s August festivals, bringing together the capital’s leading galleries, museums, production facilities and artist-run spaces in a city-wide celebration of the very best in visual art. Each year, the festival features leading international and UK artists alongside the best emerging talent, major survey exhibitions of historic figures, and a special programme of newly commissioned artworks that respond to public and historic sites in the city. The vast majority of exhibitions and events are free to attend.
I was invited to headline Art Late 1, an evening of visual arts in RBGE’s unique spaces with exhibitions, live performance, artists and curators in conversation with contributions from across our partner programme. Presented in partnership with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
