7 Day Drunk

Performance artist Bryony Kimmings sets out to explore the connection between alcohol and creativity. In this she uses art made during her experiment to form the basis of a show, which, while colourful and energetic, fails to bring any original insight to the subject matter.

Assembly George Square, 623 3030, until 28 Aug, 8pm, £12 (£10).
