Artist-collective The Stove has put together a week-long programme that celebrates Dumfries and offers folk the chance to be part of the debate about the town. Six specially commissioned art projects will be presented in public spaces along with public performances and talks by leading thinkers + film screenings and concerts.
· ‘Why Andy Warhol is Shite’ – performance lecture by International Artist Bill Drummond
· ‘Street Shrines’ – new work around Dumfries by one of Scotland’s leading street/public artists, Mike Inglis
· ‘Greyfriars 1’ – world premiere of Suzanne Parry-John’s song cycle about the Nith and launch of artist Lisa Gallacher’s bespoke clothing collection TDRM:Dumfries
· ‘Nith Scoping’ – Environmental Artist Hannah Brackston invites investigation of Dumfries’ river
Also look out for Marions Preez’s blue ‘Frames’ around the town and whatever you do – don’t miss ‘The Lost Supper’ a simultaneous voyage back in time and into the future + great food!
WHAT’S EVEN BETTER IS THAT IT IS ALL FREE
