THE GOOD PRESS REMOTE RESIDENCY
A body of work and exhibition opening 8th May, closing 1st June 2013
We are inviting applications for Good Press’s very first Residency. This is open to artists of all disciplines; visual artists, photographers, writers, publishers, people.
As an artist in residence at Good Press, you will develop an artwork or project between 8th May - 1st June 2013. The format is entirely up to the artist, but we envisage that as a rough guide the development period will last from the 8th May until 26th May, and thereafter the space would become an “exhibit”.
The residency will be ran remotely, and so as opposed to being here in Glasgow, we are proposing that you are a resident in your own town and send packages either by mail (in the spirit of mail art) or electronically (in the spirit of futuristic living) throughout the month with clear instructions for it’s installation.
The entirety of Good Press is open to you, we have an exhibition tabletop for displaying artworks, but also the whole bookshop is at your command. We can act as eyes and ears for you and will be close to hand to answer questions and give any necessary feedback.
A small budget will be available to contribute towards materials, posting and the general production of the project, and we will work together on promotional material.
To apply, we’d like to see
- your full name and where you are based.
- a proposal (500 words maximum) outlining what you’d like to do.
- a link to your website OR 4-6 images no larger than 5MB in total.
Please e-mail applications with the title ‘REMOTE RESIDENCY’ to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any questions to the same e-mail address pleeeease.
Applications close Sunday 24th March 2013
We will notify all applicants of the outcome by the 5th April
Thank You and Good Luck!
