Find out what goes on behind Summerhall’s doors – Edinburgh’s most diverse creative hub.
This spring, Summerhall’s resident artists, management and the staff who call this arts complex home are filling the building to the brim with their work for their first ever collaborative exhibition: PROJECT SUMMERHALL.
PROJECT SUMMERHALL celebrates the absolute wealth of artistic endeavour and cross-pollination going on inside the building – including visual arts, sculpture and live performance. There will be photography, film and video, plus publications, print and jewellery.
Opening up the Summerhall community to the public, there will be plenty of opportunity to visit studios, workspaces and offices throughout the three weeks. Residents will be on hand to share what they do and talk about their practice – you might even meet their dogs.
PROJECT SUMMERHALL sees a number of unique collaborations springing up between the many creative brains working in the building;
Artist Mary Walters and Edinburgh Ice Company’s Ilanna Middleton are creating a multi-media projection project together.
Hairdresser Magda Jednorowicz and photographer Peter Dibdin are combining forces with a series of stereoscopic portraits of Magda’s clients.
Visual artist Alan Brown and resident poet Michael Pedersen (Neu! Reekie!) have built the interactive Automated Poetry Machine, while Alan will also be showcasing his installation INSIDE/OUT.
And to name but a few solo projects;
Ryoko Tamura, visual artist and Summerhall staff member (known for her scotch-egg-eating polar bear illustration series), is showcasing a series of new artworks.
Summerhall Resident Rebecca Milling will be showing 2D Photographs from her series, Exit.
Resident glass jewellery maker and member of the Summerhall Jewellery School Helen Chalmers is showing 50 unique hand-made pairs of glass earrings – each illustrating a step in a journey around the world.
Maintenance team member and resident dungaree-wearer Max Gabbott has created a series of hand-crafted anthropomorphised musical instruments.
