Wondering People & Welcome To Inchfuckery @ Summerhall, Edinburgh

Summerhall (the former Royal Dick Veterinary College @ Summerhall Pl, Edinburgh EH9 1PL) is Edinburgh's largest and most intriguing multi-purpose arts venue. One of the real pleasures/perils for the inexperienced visitor is wandering the building's corridors, courtyard and stairwells (an odd mix of grand 18th century architecture and brutalist postwar urban planning) in your quest for some artistic treasures.

However, the tenacious visitor will often find some truly inspired displays of eclectic artwork. Today I look at two of its current exhibitions. For further information please check out the Summerhall website here: https://www.summerhall.co.uk
