The Skinny Showcase @ Creative Exchange

Introducing a new development for the Showcase – an exhibition of a selection of this year's graduates as part of Edinburgh Art Festival.

Gallery | 08 Aug 2014

Since 2008 The Skinny has been selecting graduate artists from Scotland’s degree shows to feature in the Showcase section of the magazine, a double page spread at the centre of each issue which celebrates emerging art talent. This year we’re bringing it into the real world, with four artists drawn from four Scottish art schools exhibiting together here in the Edinburgh Art Festival.

We are showing work from each of the degree shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, and for this first time Gray’s in Aberdeen. This year there are four artists in the exhibition, namely Fiona Beveridge (ECA), Edward Humphrey (DJCAD), Caitlin Hynes (Gray’s) and Melanie Letore (GSA).

Take a look at the exhibition online here, or visit in person at Creative Exchange down in Leith, the venue kindly offered to us by Edinburgh College. We’ve also been given fantastic support from some of the colleges, namely ECA, GSA and Gray’s, as well as our pals at Pilot Beer, who’re providing some casks for the opening, and Old School Fabrications, who’re helping us out with building a screening room for Edward Humphrey’s video work.

The Skinny Showcase runs from Friday 1 August until the end of the month.
