EDINBURGH.- Following the extraordinarily positive response to Ciara Phillips' Dazzle Ship Scotland at Prince of Wales Dock, Leith, co-commissioned with 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, Edinburgh Art Festival announced that the work will remain at the docks into 2017. The extension of the exhibition dates has been in partnership with The Royal Yacht Britannia Trust.

For the past three months the ship has proven to be an incredibly popular attraction, becoming a much-loved part of the Leith landscape and the surrounding community. EAF has worked with, amongst others, pupils from Wardie Primary and Trinity Academy, a reminiscence project with women from Port of Leith Housing Association and a group of adults from Upward Mobility.

Sorcha Carey, Director of Edinburgh Art Festival, said: 'Every Woman is a great example of the legacy that we hope to build with EAF. The piece has reimagined and opened up unexpected spaces and areas of the city, and the extension of exhibition dates will enable us to share this important piece of work with communities well beyond the festival.'

The closing weekend of the festival's thirteenth edition will culminate in a series of celebratory events across the city. A highlight will be New Zealand artist Olivia Webb's new sound installation, Lapides Vivi (Living Stones), installed in Trinity Apse. Responding to the EAF Commissions theme of 'The Monument', Olivia has created an opportunity for people to momentarily reclaim an overlooked historic site.

In her final piece over 100 different voices sing together across time; a fading music resounding in what is otherwise a silent space. Participants have revived, through sound and song, the musical score illustrated in the church's medieval altarpiece, painted for the original Trinity College Kirk building by Hugo van der Goes in the 1460's, and now on permanent display in the Scottish National Gallery).

Other events taking place in the final week of the Festival include today's lecture by, internationally renowned artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar on his practice – discussed in relation to the Festival's commissions programme's themes of commemoration and remembering. Saturday will see the Festival's final pop-up event; Kimberley O'Neill's Conatus TV at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. On Sunday, artists selected to participate in the second year of the initiative Platform – The Brownlee Brothers, Paloma Proudfoot & Aniela Piasecka, Dorian Jose Braun and Jack Saunders - will discuss their work in conversation. The Platform exhibition aims to give artists at the beginning of their career greater opportunities. The works displayed were selected by a panel that included artists Ross Sinclair and Rachel MacLean.

Many of EAF's partner exhibitions will also remain open after 28 August,
