Curator's Tours

Installation view, Nicolas Party: Boys and Pastel, Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Every 2nd Friday throughout the exhibition (15th & 29th May; 12th June), 2–3pm. Free.

Join curator Paul Nesbitt and Exhibitions Officer Chloe Reith as they lead an in-depth discussion on the work of Nicolas Party and the exhibition at Inverleith House.

The first major solo exhibition in a UK public gallery by the Swiss artist (b.1980, Lausanne. Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium). For Boys and Pastel, Nicolas Party has transformed the formal Georgian interior of Inverleith House into a contemporary ‘gesamtkunstwerk’ with the most expansive installation of his decorative wall paintings and charcoal drawings to date. Spanning every available inch of the seven gallery spaces, these patterned murals act as a framing device and wondrous stage set for a new series of pastel compositions. Running concurrently in the lower ground floor gallery is a programme of Party's rarely seen short films which provide further insight into the artist's unique aesthetic language. Free, all welcome.
