Art City is an exhibition of zines made by young people from 6VT, Edinburgh City Youth Café, as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s youth programme. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon welcomed the students to the Scottish Parliament yesterday to see their art work on display.
To create the exhibition, young people from 6VT worked with artist Louise Fraser to document their local environment. They experimented with photography, collage, marbling, cyanotypes, printing and drawing to make zines (self-made publications) about the city.
The young people’s publications contain reactions to current affairs and how they feel in their immediate environment in 6VT and in the city.
