Edinburgh Art Festival


Edinburgh Art Festival (EAF) is the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art, and a leading international platform for supporting the development, production and presentation of ambitious new work by Scottish artists. Each year, we work in partnership with Scotland’s visual arts sector to present a rich and varied programme of exhibitions, publicly-sited commissions and events, the vast majority of which is free at the point of access. We are committed to sharing the very best visual art with audiences, locally, nationally and internationally; and to finding ways to present ambitious and challenging programme in a manner which appealing and accessible to general audiences. Partnership is at the core of our festival model, and critical to the development and delivery of our ambitions.

Founded in 2004 to provide a dedicated platform for the visual arts at the heart of Edinburgh’s summer festivals, we celebrated our 13th edition in 2016 with a programme of 52 exhibitions and pop up events, and 6 specially commissioned artworks exploring the theme of the monument, including Ciara Phillips’ acclaimed Dazzle Ship.
