Critic’s Pick:

Centred around and named after Scottish artist Margaret Tait’s half-hour episodic and wandering portrait of Edinburgh, Where I Am Is Here (1964), and part of a set of events marking the 100th anniversary of her birth, this changing set of screenings and performance, curated by Helen Nisbett, is already well under way, so catch the rest while you can. Tait’s film plays continually over the next two weeks, glancing black and white Super 8 footage of incidents large and small: revellers rolling in freshly fallen snow, while the camera lingers on the window pane; a man self-consciously launching a toy sailboat into a stream. Alongside this, each weekend features a different artist in parallel, which began with Mariam Ghani’s To Live (2013); this coming weekend features a performance by Rhona Warwick Patterson (9 September), and next weekend work by Jasleen Kaur (14–16 September).
