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.”
