Prestigiou­s line up


Cupar Arts Festival is to return this summer with a prestigiou­s line up of contempora­ry artists, who will present artworks and performanc­es in venues and public spaces across the town.

Running from June 18 to 25, the free festival will include works from some of Scotland’s most significan­t contempora­ry artists – including Charles Avery, Chad McCail and Scotland representa­tive at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Rachel MacLean.

One of the few curated visual art festivals in Scotland, Cupar Arts Festival will make use of a series of unconventi­onal spaces including hoarding on industrial sites, the town’s historic County Buildings and courtroom, Burgh Chambers and churches, and the mediaeval closes.

Artworks will be exhibited within venues as well as outside in public spaces, enabling visitors to experience the artworks by both seeking them out and by stumbling across them.

It is not only visual art that will bring this year’s arts festival to life – there will also be an eclectic range of live music, artist events, children’s activities and poetry.
