Coinciding with the opening of Edinburgh Art Festival, Rhubaba will be launching the first in a series of flag artworks by Rhubaba studio holders, to be flown from a newly installed flagpole. Through commissioning studio holders to produce these flag artworks, a small part of the activity that that normally goes on unseen inside the studios is put proudly on display, making Rhubaba more visible and signalling its location like a marker in a map.
The inaugural flag will be designed by visual artist Rabiya Choudhry whose work explores the themes of identity and cultural displacement in contemporary British society with a darkly comedic approach. Her work expresses the complicated coupling of eastern and western cultures in richly vibrant portrayals of the different autobiographical factors present in her own life.
Launch 28 July
