FESTIVAL
WELCOME
In 2016, our internationalism has once again been tested
by a political referendum questioning the position of our
country in the world. Seventy years ago in 1947 the first
Edinburgh Festival was created to 'heal wounds of war
through the languages of the arts’, and here at Summerhall
we exist to keep faith with that mission, to explore ideas
which are common to all humans with a spirit of openminded internationalism.
The work we present offers entertainment and amusement,
but we know that enjoyment of the arts is a serious business
to many. At Summerhall we meet interesting and wonderful
people from around the world as we participate in our
shared international culture, exploring our sense of place
and purpose in the world and connecting directly with one
another. In our programme are artists and shows from more
than 30 countries whose work touches on crime and
punishment, the housing crisis, feminism, the EU, nationalism,
the media and terrorism.
We’re proud of a festival programme which maintains the
diversity, internationalism, risk and surprise our audiences
expect, with partnership projects from Beyond Borders,
Aurora Nova, Northern Stage, Big in Belgium, Rose Bruford,
the Demarco European Art Foundation, Made in Scotland and
Paines Plough. Once more, our year-round music programme
Nothing Ever Happens Here makes Summerhall one of
Edinburgh’s hubs of varied and exciting live music from
across the world in August.
This year, most especially, we celebrate Joseph Beuys who
worked with Richard Demarco and myself many times here
in Scotland. It’s a year of anniversaries; the 30th of Beuys’
death, the 50th of the Demarco Gallery’s foundation, and the
70th Edinburgh Festival (although that anniversary officially
arrives in 2017). Our Beuys/Demarco show supplements the

VISUAL
ARTS
directly related exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of
Modern Art. A significant figure in the artistic history of this
city, Beuys’ legacy is stronger than ever and we, along with
the Demarco European Art Foundation consider Summerhall
to be part of that legacy.
To complement the Beuys/Demarco exhibition we present
the first Scottish overview of the seminal Artist Placement
Group, with which both Beuys and Demarco had strong links.
The five other contemporary art exhibitions which make up
the programme symbolise the importance of artists such as
Beuys, Demarco and APG members in redefining the role of
the artist, and their influence on contemporary practice.
We strongly advise everyone to see the Surrealism exhibition
at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which is world
class and the most sensational art exhibition in Scotland in
recent decades.
This year we will also be showing items from the festival’s
history which we hope will build towards creating an
Edinburgh Festival Museum. Summerhall is a multi-arts
venue, a place for interdisciplinary research and education,
which is open all year round as Europe's largest private arts
centre. We host and produce nearly 800 shows and events
annually and receive over half a million visitors. The festival
never decamps from here, we are a cultural village that in
August becomes a cultural town. We hope you will be
inspired and entertained by the work we’re privileged to
do, and we hope your experiences here will make 2016 a
year to remember.

NOISEMAKER
This year’s visual arts programme focuses on the artist as
Noisemaker, looking at the artist’s role as communicator,
acting at times as mediator or agitator in the imparting
and exchanging of information. The arrest and subversion
of sound, dialogue, gestures and text come to the fore, with
installations centred on the position and tools of the artist
in communicating and creating experience.
Production and position play a key role, with the exhibition
Context is Half the Work. A Partial History of the Artist
Placement Group emblematic of this. The first overview of
this seminal group in Scotland, the exhibition explores the
Artist Placement Group’s (APG) activity, with placements in
industry and public organisations. They re-positioned the
role of the artist, making the case that artistic practice and
knowledge would no longer be confined to the studio and
gallery, but could be extended to act upon societal
organisation and decision-making processes.
The emergence of the APG concept took place against the
backdrop of an on-going discourse about ‘dematerialisation’,
moving away from an object-based understanding of the
work of art towards site-specific work, social relationships
and information. The APG changed the history of conceptual
art and influenced many contemporary artists including
Laure Prouvost, who in the past has worked closely with
artists Barbara Steveni and John Latham (co-founders of the
APG) as Latham’s artist-assistant. Key works from Prouvost’s
practice feature in her exhibition Monolog, which uses the
chemistry of written and spoken language, gesture and
imagery to immerse and direct the viewer to look beyond
what the installations and our lives present to us.
The questioning of cultural forms and norms comes
into play within the exhibitions. Sound artists Mark Fell
and Haroon Mirza present solo exhibitions which expose
the expansive nature, and therefore limits, of conceptual
art and installation experience. Fell’s mathematical,
analytical and academic approach to producing is
paired with philosophical explorations of the self in
Diagramming The Listener whilst Mirza’s sculptural
soundscape Adam, Eve, Others and a UFO reflects on
our digital environment, engineered to generate a spatial
examination of sound.

Performative activity and play continue to be central themes
in Summerhall’s visual arts programme. Tamsyn Challenger
returns to present her new installation Hyper Bowl. Similarly,
to Prouvost, Challenger examines truth and fiction, her
immersive work and one-off performance scrutinises the
exaggerated, and at times, false vocabulary, used to
characterise artists and their works. Duo Pester and Rossi
maintain the challenging of social conventions through
visual puns, using their feminist approach to examine the
body, sexuality, daily rituals and interactions, responding
to the cave-like Room Under The Stairs Gallery.
The programme is bookended by exhibitions paying
homage to the legacy of Joseph Beuys and the Demarco
Gallery, co-produced by Robert McDowell, Summerhall’s
Director, and Richard Demarco, former Director of the
Demarco Gallery and Director of the Demarco European Art
Foundation based at Summerhall. The Demarco Gallery was
at the vanguard of creating a dialogue between artists and
place, through its European exploration programme,
Edinburgh Arts. Demarco and Beuys had strong links to the
Artist Placement Group - Barbara Steveni and John Latham
were Edinburgh Arts participants, and other members
exhibited as part of the Demarco Gallery exhibitions
programme. In 1977 Beuys invited the APG to discuss
artist-with-government placements at Documenta 6 in
Kassel, bringing the group to the attention of the German
government. This led to exchanges with the government,
and the first international artist-with-government placement.
The Beuys/Demarco exhibition highlights groups, networks
and individuals, and their ground-breaking approaches,
elevating interdisciplinary methodologies, paving the way
for artists to continue to noise up contemporary practice.
