Edinburgh`s celebrated arts festival has started its ‘most ambitious` events programme yet, which will run through August and continue to 2 September.
Thirty of the Scottish capital`s famed museums and galleries will be hosting 45 exhibitions, with acclaimed international artists such as Hermann Nitsch, Melvin Moti, Dieter Roth and Rachel Mayeri all contributing to the month long event.
New commissions from major artists Susan Phillipsz, Andrew Miller, Emily Speed, Kevin Harman and Anthony Schrag will also be a popular feature, whilst retrospectives from the likes of Ian Hamilton Finlay, Leslie Hunter and John Bellany help complete a breath-taking line-up.
Just a few of many fascinating exhibitions on show at the festival, it could be a great event to take advantage of whilst enjoying a break in one of the fine hotels in Edinburgh
, a brilliant base for any of those culture vultures hoping to take in the high quality art on display at this excellent festival.
