Art Late, our unique annual culture crawl exploring exhibitions across the city, returned this year in a new digital iteration on Thursday 19 & 26 August

  • Chizu Anucha, whose work Slump, subside and other farewells is part of our Associate Artist Programme, performed a live sound piece.

  • A narrative by Mara the Storyteller, ‘Blood and Gold’, which explores themes of identity, belonging, home and drawing inspiration. Also featuring Gateway by Sequoia Barnes and In guise of Land by Matthew Arthur Williams, two new commissions at Johnston Terrace Wildlife Garden, presented as part of Edinburgh Art Festival’s Associate Artist Programme curated by Tako Taal.
