The Edinburgh Art Festival is under way with an exciting month-long programme

Edinburgh Art Festival events programme is available now

1 August – 1 September 2013

Edinburgh Art Festival (EAF) has an exciting 2013 events programme in its 10th  anniversary year. Complementing EAF’s major exhibitions and the annual city-wide programme of new public art commissions, this year entitled ‘Parley’, the festival’s events programme will feature one-off performances, artist and curator talks and art tours across the city, alongside musical performances and plays. Most events are free to attend and tickets are available from

Commissioned live performances within the ‘Parley’programme will include The Complaints Choir as well as Sarah Kenchington’s Wind Pipes for Edinburgh, featuring new compositions by Colin Broom and Muris among others. EAF has also commissioned artists Ross Sinclair and (co-commissioned with Edinburgh Printmakers) Rachel Maclean to curate public ‘Parley’discussions; further Parley events will include the short musical play Parley for Power by Michael Pedersen and Alan Bissett.

Talks and seminars by some of the world’s leading artists and curators bring the EAF exhibitions programme to life throughout August, including Gabriel Orozco in conversation with art historians Briony Fer and Benjamin Buchloh; Lisa Le Feuvre on Mostly West: Franz West and Artist Collaborations and photographer Ângela Ferreira will discuss her exhibition ‘Political Cameras’with curator Filipa Oliveria.

EAF will also be running two guided Art Cycle Tours that will reach some of the more far-flung areas of the festival.
