Come to ART LATE – The CITY WIDE end of Festival Party

Edinburgh Art Festival would like to invite you to Art Late, our city-wide end of Festival party. It’s the ultimate opportunity to celebrate Edinburgh’s incredible visual arts scene, and it won’t cost you a bean.

The night begins at 6pm at the Ingleby Gallery with a collaborative performance from musician Wounded Knee and dancer Ianthe Wright. Later, two contrasting tours will set out from the gallery leading people round the Festival offering different experiences of the exhibitions: The Giving Tour and the Blank Canvas Bike Tour.

The ‘Spin Tour’ will set out from Talbot Rice Gallery at 6pm and is a personal introduction to exhibitions open as part of ART LATE. There’s also a live reading by Phil Kay, printmaking demonstration, artists’ performances and an exploration of the underbelly of Edinburgh’s infamous historical episodes.

If you are feeling independent, and would rather follow your own muse, there are 18 galleries open that evening for you to explore at your leisure.

ART LATE culminates at 9.30pm with Smoke – a collaborative work by local artists to create a night of music, performance and nicotine at niteclub Electric Circus on Market Street.

It’s going to be great. You can find out all about it here:

Book your place and download your e-ticket. The ticket gets you entry to all Art Late venues, and without it you can’t come in!

We hope you get the chance to join us for one final night of festival fun to draw to a close the 2009 Edinburgh Art Festival.
