An art project based on Café Giacomo, Dunfermline. The café has remained relatively unchanged since it opened in 1958 – still with original booth seating and tables. During 2017, artist Ally Wallace undertook a short residency there – to gather information and record details of his surroundings through drawing and video, as a means of conveying something about the character of the place. The resulting work – drawings, linocuts and a short film – will be shown in the café during Outwith Festival.
Fri/Sat: 10am – midnight
Sun: 11am – 5pm
