Dovecot Gallery exhibitions encapsulate Edinburgh Art Festival
3 August 2015
Dovecot Gallery exhibitions for Edinburgh Art Festival 2015 opened last week, with Kwang Young Chun Aggregations display of sculptural mulberry paper assemblage works next to the retrospective exhibition of paintings and textile works by the late designer Bernat Klein titled A Life in Colour.
Sorcha Carey, Director of Edinburgh Art Festival commented that Dovecot Gallery exhibitions “encapsulate how Edinburgh Art Festival brings together cutting-edge contemporary work alongside monograph and solo exhibitions looking back to the past”. Edinburgh Art Festival is the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art, bringing together the capital’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces, alongside new public art commissions by established and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events. Dovecot Gallery is proud to be a part of the festival and offers two significant exhibitions; the first solo show of works by internationally acclaimed Korean artist Kwang Young Chun, alongside works by Scottish Borders based artist and designer Bernat Klein, whose signature tweeds were exported to the haute-couture fashion houses of Europe in the 1960s.
Aggregations and A Life in Colour exhibitions run now until 26 September 2015. Dovecot Gallery and Dovecot Tapestry Studio Viewing Balcony are open daily throughout August 10am-6pm.
Exhibitions Curator Kate Greyner talks on Good Morning Scotland about Bernat Klein exhibition A Life in Colour.
Sorcha Carey, Director Edinburgh Art Festival talks to Summerhall TV about the programme.
