Peter Liversidge - Hello Flags 2020

As Edinburgh begins to emerge from lockdown and we reflect on a period of unprecedented global change and upheaval, the Edinburgh Art Festival will present 10 artists from previous festival editions, to work with us to mark the dates of what would have been our 2020 festival from 30 July – 30 August.

Combining archival presentations chosen for their resonance in relation to the current context (local and global), alongside specially conceived responses, the selection includes online screenings and live performances as well as a small number of projects appearing in public sites around the city.

 

One such intervention will be the restaging of Peter Liversige's HELLO flags which graced the city skyline during the Edinburgh Art Festival in 2013.
