Group Critical Writing Residency, 2014
Cooper Gallery at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and Edinburgh College of Art
An online anthology of new texts discussing what it is to be contemporary within art and culture in Scotland today.
Drawn from open submission from across Scotland and edited by me, emerging writers are thinking through collaboration and collectivity, accumulating distinct singularised voices into a speculative document of what it is to be contemporary within art and culture in Scotland today. Writers were invited to respond to the following propositions: How do collectives function / How to collaborate between differences / Finding a shared vocabulary in a cross-disciplinary collaboration / No individual authorship / I’m not interested in collaboration; I just want to make things / Here. Right now.
Group Critical Writing Residency is one part of Studio Jamming: Artists’ Collaborations in Scotland curated by Sophia Hao at Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. A second part of the reading cycle took place at Edinburgh College of Art, 23 August 2014.
