What are you up to this week?
Fancy coming to the launch of the Edinburgh Art Festival? My Referendum themed installation / event - After the Revolution, Who Will Clean Up the Mess? begins as part of Talbot Rice Gallery's Counterpoint exhibition this Thursday 31 July (see below for details).
I'm in conversation with journalist and activist Ewa Jasiewicz on Monday 11 August, and holding a small but special all-night Referendum Results Party and live webcast from the gallery on 18 - 19 September, so you can witness all the action!
Also this summer, I'm starting the search for four more venues to 'adopt' my Early Warning Signs. If you know an arts organisation that should follow in the footsteps of GoMA, FACT, Aspex and Beaconsfield (all hosting signs this year), please see below for further details and apply through the website.
Very best wishes,
Counterpoint, four large confetti cannons have been installed in their ornate Georgian gallery space. Linked up to a central detonation unit, the cannons will only be activated in the event of a YES vote. If a NO vote is declared, they will remain dormant for the entire duration of the exhibition and we will never witness what might have been.
You are invited to join us throughout the night 18 - 19 September to witness all the action / inaction live!
Counterpoint Exhibition: 1 August - 18 October 2014, 12:00 - 17:00

Early Warning Signs project is entering its fourth year and the artist is now seeking applications from host venues to 'adopt' one of the four 'climate change' signs in 2015.
Initiated with the mission to 'reduce, reuse, recycle her art', the project has seen these now familiar rotating signs hosted by a growing list of venues including: Beaconsfield, FACT, Gallery of Modern Art, Aspex Gallery, Eastside Projects, Castlefield Gallery, Space Station Sixty-Five, Travelling Gallery, Site Gallery, Dundee Contemporary Arts, CCA Glasgow, The Hidden Gardens at Tramway, Beacon Art Project and at Artsadmin's Two Degrees Festival, where it all began back in 2011.
Now's your chance to join this prestigious group!
DEADLINE: Friday 31 October 2014
Please forward on these details to arts organisations / galleries you know who might be interested in adopting a sign.
