After several decades of taking a back seat to opera, theatre and music, visual art at the Edinburgh International Festival has come into its own with a lively, diverse and extensive selection of exhibitions and events presented under the aegis of the annual Edinburgh Art Festival, now in its fifth year. In a programme which includes over 40 shows and a range of talks and other events, there is much for the art-loving festival-goer to enjoy, from small exhibitions hosted in private temporary venues to large blockbusters such as Impressionism and Scotland, at the National Gallery, and Tracey Emin: 20 Years, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
