Geoffrey MacEwan. 369 Gallery, Edinburgh

0n the night before Geoffrey MacEwan leaves Scotland for Holland permanently. he is performing. Not in the strictest sense, more a performance which puts words to his art. a series of paintings which began with Dante and have ended with the fourseasons and the portrait ofan artist. Though still one of 369's ‘house’ artists, MacEwan will be based in The Hague and is looking forward to exploring avenues of performance in a country with galleries more geared towards that medium. Beginning at 7pm on Tuesday 29 November, his farewell evening will be free and followed by a discussion.
