Various Artists: Edinburgh Art Festival
Whilst Edinburgh Art Festival 2020 was unable to go ahead as planned, the team have developed an exciting programme of online events and outdoor activations to mark the festival.
We are delighted to form a part of the proceedings and showcase works from three exciting contemporary artists on our sites across Edinburgh – forming a street gallery for this years’ alternative festival offerings.
Ruth Ewan, who revisits her Sympathetic Magick (2018) project with an online presentation of her short film, Worker’s Song Storydeck, and a special poster series devised with magician Ian Saville. Artist and activist Ellie Harrison presents an up-to-date version of her graph showing the tonnes of carbon produced by the personal transportation of a ‘professional artist’ and Tam Joseph re-presents The hand made map of the world, Transforming and subverting the ‘World Political Map’, renaming familiar landmasses (America becomes China; United Kingdom becomes Cuba) to lay bare the destructive quest for territorial control which has dominated geopolitics over the centuries.
