A number of University alumni who graduated in the arts had exhibitions in the 2015 Festival Fringe and Arts Festival.
Leo du Feu and his mother Susan Smith exhibited their artwork as part of the Festival Fringe. Both Leo and Susan are Edinburgh graduates, Leo in Drawing & Painting (2006), Susan in Fine Art (1976). Their show featured a new collection of oils by Susan, and Leo exhibited a selection of works made between graduating ECA and now.
The free exhibition was at Royal Over-Seas League and open to all from 3 August - 18 September, 10am - 6pm.
It's a treat to exhibit alongside each other here at Over-Seas House Edinburgh in only our second ever mother-son show. Even more special - we're showing two of mum's mum's paintings alongside our own.
Dennis J. Reinmuller, a 2013 ECA graduate, exhibited his work The Strip, as part of the duo the Dennis and Debbie Club, a collaboration with fellow artist Debbie Moody.
The Strip was an audio-visual installation, featuring looping CGI animations displayed over multiple screens. It featured reconstructions of three different locations: the greenhouse in which Kurt Cobain shot himself in 1994; a crater on the planet Mars from data captured by ESA’s Mars Express Mission in 2014; and a collage of seemingly timeless buildings found along Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip.
The Strip was at CodeBase (Argyle House) from 1 - 30 August on Saturdays and Sundays, 10am - 6pm.
Music graduate Kirsteen Davidson Kelly’s work was a part of Remote Centres: Performances from Outlandia, a collection of performance and sound works originally created at the Outlandia fieldstation in Glen Nevis, Scotland.
Remote Centres: Performances from Outlandia was open at the Tent Gallery as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, Monday - Friday from 30 July - 30 August, 12pm - 5pm.
