Bob and Roberta Smith

Here at the Edinburgh Festival the nomadic Grey Gallery has taken up residence in an elegant Georgian townhose and is exhibiting one of Bob and Roberta Smith's largest works to date 'This Artist is Deeply Dangerous'.

In 2008 the arts and sports writers at The Guardian were asked to swap roles. The resulting clear, enthusiastic and personal review of a Louise Bourgeois exhibition by tennis correspondent Steve Brierley caught Smith's attention - and he has painted the text onto a series of 9 panels of reclaimed wood.

The Grey Gallery @Hawke and Hunter, 12 Picardy Place, Edinbugh EH1 3JT
