Jane and Louise Wilson: Unfolding the Aryan Papers, Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh

As you walk up the stairs, a sombre female voice wafts towards you. It is that of the Dutch-born actress Johanna ter Steege who was cast in the lead role of Tania, a Polish Jew, who assumed the identity of a Catholic to save her family in Stanley Kubrick's aborted Holocaust film Aryan Papers. It is coming from a huge black gauze-like installation which dominates the gallery.

Observations: Lucky seven are in the frame for Threadneedle Prize

Party Of The Week: Cool Pimm's, Cold Corners at the Tate

The Tate Britain Summer Party on Monday night was crammed with artists. Grayson Perry wore a typically gaudy multicoloured summer dress and was joined by Sirs Peter Blake and Howard Hodgkin, and Richard Long. They wandered among the aluminium beams of Eva Rothschild's new Duveens Commission Cold Corners – a huge, angular structure that stretches the full length of the gallery and which is fondly referred to as the "scribble in space".

Little-known artist takes over the Tate

It is one of the country's largest spaces to showcase the best of British sculpture, so being commissioned to create an artwork for the Duveen Galleries - the central space in Tate Britain - has not just drawn in hordes of visitors but also cemented the reputations of Britain's boldest contemporary artists.

Observations: RSA's sideswipe at Turner Prize

The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) was founded in 1754 by William Shipley, an art master known less as an artist than a cultivateur modeste, whose idea it was to make Britain a centre for intellectual advancements in the arts and sciences. Housed in a grand Georgian house just off the Strand, its Great Room is graced with James Barry's cycle of history paintings, The Progress of Human Culture. Members have included Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Adam Smith, William Hogarth, Charles Dickens, Guglielmo Marconi.
