Open Call — Good Press’s Remote Residency

You are invited to apply for Good Press’s Remote 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 May 8th – June 1st, 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.”
