Naked Aye all started when Marcin Krupa invited a bunch of artists to be part of a 2 day pop up exhibition in spring 2015. The exhibition took over two of the galleries at St Margaret’s House and was a great success.

Musicians and performance artist Saras Feijoo  were at the launch night plus a live interactive installation involving life model, Topaz Pauls, who heads up the All the Young Nudes life drawing nights in Edinburgh.

Marcin Krupa – join us!

Naked Aye Two promises to be even bigger and better – with two weeks of exhibition, plus poetry, film and video, plus various associated events taking place over the fortnight. But at its heart is artworks and artistic expression based on the body – whether figuratively or abstractly.

This is a great opportunity to see your work in a large group exhibition in one of the most fabulous exhibition spaces, and be part of a unique series of events celebrating art and the body – so don’t miss out.

Join us  – apply and spread the word or get involved as a volunteer.

Deadline 5th Sept. Apply here.

Here’s a couple of posters that can be shared.

Many thanks!
