Leith Late Festival 2017

Leith Late is an arts organisation that puts together an annual public event of music, visual arts and performances along Leith Walk.

When I was writing my master thesis in 2015, theorizing otherness and the importance of it in the self-defining process as reflected on a micro and macro level of interconnectedness, I would have never imagined that I would have the chance to attend an art exhibition so close to my […]

Custom House – Trina Bohan

With Scottish Historic Buildings Trust’s initiative to bring Custom House back to public use, a beautiful event was held in Leith, where this prominent building is was established in 1812. Surrounded by all types of artists, painters, jewellers, designers, it was Trina Bohan’s work that caught my attention when I […]

David Blyth’s prints of symmetrical patterns, Alan Grieve’s humorous drawings of real life situations and Derrick Guild’s predominant animal figures negotiated the interaction […]

Are all these artworks good because people like them or do people like them because they are good? The Euthyphro dilemma of Art! […]

acts of dis play

Lights and philosophy, paintings and sculpture, video installations and broken TV screens and at the center of multidimensional exhibition, a tree emerging from prosaic objects rising like a phoenix from its ashes. In Talbot Rice Gallery, early November 2016, Rob Kennedy triggered an open, tripartite dialogue between art,space and visitors, […]
