The Fruitmarket Gallery
45 Market Street, EH1 1DF Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Fruitmarket Gallery is excited to be working with artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller again after their incredibly successful Edinburgh Festival exhibition in 2008, The House of Books has no Windows. Over the next two years, Cardiff and Miller will be working on a permanent artwork for Edinburgh, which will be premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2019. The work may take the form of a media-based walk through the city.
The Fruitmarket are hosting three events bringing people together to share stories of Edinburgh, whether they be personal, historical, urban myth or fiction. This initial research into the city’s local history and geography may unearth stories to inspire Cardiff and Miller. So why not join members of the Gallery's staff for a walk around Edinburgh’s New Town and bring your stories of the area.
When you sign up via Eventbrite, please let us know whether you intend to tell a story to the group, and if so, which location in the New Town is most associated with it. Please meet at The Fruitmarket Gallery, 45 Market Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1DF at 2pm.
