Opportunity for Early Career Artists


Exhibition of Early Career Scottish Artists to be showcased during Edinburgh Art Festival 2015

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 17.56.50Edinburgh Art Festival is very pleased to announce the introduction of a new exhibition platform for early career artists. This opportunity is intended to give support to artists at the beginning of their careers to participate in the festival programme, and to highlight their work to a national and international audience. Between 3-5 artists will be selected from the open call, and will work closely with the Festival Director and team to present their work in a group exhibition.

Proposals will be selected by a panel led by the Festival Director alongside two artists who have been previously commissioned by the festival. In 2015, Christine Borland and Craig Coulthard will work with Sorcha Carey to select work for this inaugural showcase. Christine Borland was commissioned by the festival in 2013, and Craig Coulthard participated in the 2014 programme.

Full details and the application form are attached.
