Making Of It - Hanging

Here are some pics of the hanging of The Making Of It.

This shows the venue itself, just of Brunswick Street. It is a nice place to exhibit, just down a vennel and just off Leith Walk itself. The space was pretty huge which was useful to accommodate all the artists involved! The space is run by an advertising agency in the building in the background, they were very helpful with all aspects of the show.

Myself and Scott discussing hanging.

Allan doing his thing... Allan is going to paint his picture throughout the exhibition resulting in a sort of 'performance' throughout the exhibition. If you go in on the opening the painting will have altered by the end of the exhibition. He got stuck in straight after hanging to get a head start.

And Augustus' work being set up

The exhibition opens on the 16th of June from 6pm till 9pm and is open everyday thereafter until the Thursday the 28th for Leith Late.

The Making Of It

Towards the end of this month I am taking part in an exhibition at the Old Ambulance Depot on Brunswick Street in Leith. The exhibition runs from Saturday the 17th June until Thursday the 28th June. It is open 6-9pm on the 17th for a preview and during the week it is open 10am-5pm with a special late opening event on the last day to coincide with the Leith Late festival.

This exhibition involves 14 artists from around Europe working with totally different mediums/subject matters. It should make for an enjoyable and ever changing exhibition! As well as 2D works there will also be live performances by Martin Campbell, Augustus Veinoglou and Dominik Lipp. Also some of the artists, for example Allan Robertson, intend to make paintings during the duration of the exhibition allowing visitors to see the space changing if the keep coming back. We also have a dedicated blog for the duration of the exhibition were we will be posting images and video of the performances and other artwork in the exhibition -  

We are also involved in two festivals for the duration of the exhibition - firstly the Embassy Annuale and Leith Late festival on the closing night from 6-9pm.

 There is a map for Leith Late so you can go to all the venues on the night:
