Edinburgh Art Festival 2020: Ten Artists

Ten Artists

30 Jul 2020 – 30 Aug 2020

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Edinburgh Art Festival announced in April that the 2020 edition would not take place. Instead, as the capital begins to emerge from lockdown, the Festival has invited ten artists from previous festival editions, to show work in marking the dates of what would have been this year’s festival, 30th Jul – 30th Aug.

Ruth Ewan, Ellie Harrison, Tam Joseph, Calvin Z Laing, Peter Liversidge, Tamara MacArthur, Rosalind Nashashibi, Rae-Yen Song, Shannon Te Ao and Hanna Tuulikki are presenting work as part of this. The Festival’s selection includes online screenings and live performances as well as a small number of projects appearing in public sites around the city, and combines archival presentations chosen for their resonance in relation to the current local and global context, alongside specially-conceived responses. The full series of artists’ responses can be seen here.
