  • 21 August 2008

The resulting exhibition of the event of the Art Festival shows the works and wares of 40 teams of Scavengers who scurried around Edinburgh last weekend.
City Art Centre, 18–25 Aug, free.

Hugh Brady
Interesting conceptual installation that turns a whole studio into a look at what it means to be ‘the artist’ through references to film’s like Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960s classic Blow Up and other artworks.
16B Lennox Street Lane, www.39art.co.uk, until 25 Aug, 11am-6pm, free.

SPAM the Musical
Contrary to previously issued information, SPAM the Musical will be forcing itself on passers by in a series of undisclosed locations all over the city for one day only. We don’t know where, but checking out www.spamthemusical.com might help . . .
Various venues, 28 Aug.

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller
Six different installation pieces, each evoking different worlds and a state of child-like wonder in the viewer. Allow yourself at least an hour, go early in the morning to get the gallery to yourself, and play.
Fruitmarket, 225 2383, until 28 Sep, free.

Art Late Night
The one night of the Festival when all the galleries stay open late, with bands, quizzes, dancing and even a bit of boozing. Go on. It’s a festival.
Various venues, Thu 28 Aug. See www.edinburghartfestival.com for full info.
