The evening gallery parties will feature live music from Woven Tents and The Little Kicks
Bringing together a unique conglomerate of specially programmed exhibitions, artists talks, live music and performance, Art Late is back to guide and indulge audiences after opening hours.
Sorcha Carey, director of the Edinburgh Art Festival remarks that ‘what makes Art Late so special (apart from the trolley bag filled with beer) is the real intensity and energy of the occasion.’
With the geographical growth of the festival, Art Late has evolved from one singular event to, in recent years, Art Late North and Art Late South, which are this year joined by Art Late Central. As well as a multifaceted exhibition line up, there will be live music on Art Late North by Woven Tents and South by the Little Kicks.
The first Art Late this season kicks off with new kid on the block, Central, and will take in work at the Old Royal High School, Trinity Apse and City Art Centre.
Carey says ‘Art Late Central reflects the fact that our own festival programming is even more ambitious this year, and we wanted to have an opportunity to share our major exhibition, Where do I end and you begin, and some of our commissions with audiences out of hours.’
