Overview

Explore and discover the closes of the Royal Mile and the Open Close Exhibition 2017.

Open Close is a temporary art installation project led by a collaborative team of artists, designers and architects. Using sound, light, sculpture, design and visual art Open Close will see interventions large and small, overt and subtle scattered across Carrubbers Close, Chalmers Close and Trunks Close off Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Taking contemporary art out of the traditional gallery setting and into the heart of Scotland's capital, the Open Close exhibition will explore themes of ownership, memory, digital and natural language and character and awareness of spaces and places in the Old Town. Open Close is an invitation to explore and discover fresh ways of seeing these sometimes overlooked spaces.
