Alec Finlay – Upcoming Events

REMOTE CENTRES: Performances from Outlandia.

Edinburgh College of Art: Tent Gallery
30 July – 30 August 2015
Mon-Fri: 12-5pm (or by appointment)
Exhibition launch event: 12th August 5-7pm

Part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2015, REMOTE CENTRES: Performances from Outlandia includes a spatial representation of the Outlandia field-station and plays host to performance and sound works originally created at Outlandia by 20 artists, poets, writers, musicians and members of the Nevis community in August 2014. The commissioned artists from Scotland, England, Wales and the Faroe Islands responded to Outlandia’s distinctive geographical forest location in the Scottish Highlands, overlooked by the UK’s highest mountain, using it as a testing ground for ideas concerned with ecology of place while exploring the possibility of new environmental aesthetics.

Environmental Art Festival Scotland

29th & 30th August 2015
Morton Castle, Dumfries and Galloway
Alec Finlay will give a talk on Saturday 29th August, at 6pm
Free admission

EAFS is a free festival which uses art installations to inspire discussion about our environment and our role in protecting it. This year’s chosen space – Morton Castle in Upper Nithsdale, Dumfries and Galloway – is a dramatic festival backdrop that will provoke thought and trigger  sensory experiences.

Alec will share a fireside conversation with David Borthwick about place-aware walks, names and poetic mapping, and, the following day, will guide a collective ‘conspectus’, defining places by their name in a view from the festival site, as a way to understand better where we are.

Richard Forster at Whitworth Gallery, Manchester

Richard Forster: Modern
Whitworth Gallery, Manchester
29 August 2015 – 3 January 2016

Following the success of the solo exhibition of the same title at Ingleby Gallery in 2014, Richard Forster Modern comes to the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester. Forster creates drawings from photographs rather than from life – either using his own snapshots, or images found in magazines, books or on the internet. His choice of subjects are diverse but they are brought together by an underlying interest in measuring his experience of the world. Common to them all is a documentary approach to time and its passing, and a sense of the place of the individual within the collective.

David Austen- Sarah Hardie EAF performance

Sarah Hardie: songs for someone who isn’t there
Two performances: 9-9.40pm and 10-10.40pm, 1 August 2015
The Corner of Chambers Street and West College Street
Old College, University of Edinburgh

songs for someone who isn’t there is an evening of ‘lullabies’ – performances of song and poetry by established and emerging artists- through the streets of Edinburgh. Work by David Austen will be performed alongside Ed Atkins, Marco Godoy, Sarah Hardie and poet Crispin Best.

These city-wide ‘lullabies’ represent not the idealised togetherness of typical lullabies, but rather the pained isolation of our contemporary age of broken encounters: the lover’s hope, materialised in song, against the stony silence of public space.

Free admission.

New Callum Innes light installation unveiled

After being closed for 12 years due to anti-social behaviour in the area, Edinburgh’s High School Yards steps have been transformed by a new interactive installation by Callum Innes.

An infrared camera captures live footage of people using the steps and projects their silhouettes onto a large LED screen above them.

For more details of the project, please visit the The City of Edinburgh Council website.

Ian Hamilton Finlay at Victoria Miro

This exhibition of works by Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006), curated by Pia Simig, marks the 90th anniversary of the artist’s birth.
