Festival to showcase top artists

Bob and Roberta Smith - This Artist is Deeply Dangerous
Work by artist Bob and Roberta Smith will be shown by The Grey Gallery

Invisible graffiti, a cooking disaster art project, and a yarn-based sculpture are among works being showcased at this year's Edinburgh Art Festival.

The festival programme for 2009 features work from major artists, new work by leading British artists, and up and coming talent.

The work will be showcased at 50 galleries across Edinburgh and in public spaces.

The event runs from 5 August to 5 September.

Direct of the festival Joanne Brown said: "The quality of work being exhibited year round in Edinburgh's galleries was underlined earlier this year when two of the four artists in line for this year's Turner Prize were shortlisted for exhibitions curated in the city.

"The EAF offers a vital platform for Edinburgh's galleries and artists to stage their specially-curated exhibitions for the capital's summer Festival season."
