Open Call — Good Press Remote Residency


You are invited to apply for the second Good Press Remote Residency. This is open to artists of all disciplines; visual artists, photographers, writers, publishers, people…

As an artist in residence at Glasgow based Good Press, you will develop an artwork or project between 30th April – 31st May 2014. The format is entirely up to the artist, but we envisage that as a rough guide the development period will last from the 30th April until 19th May, and thereafter the space would become an “exhibit”, in the vein of our table stop installations.

The residency will be ran remotely, and so as opposed to traveling to 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, please send

  • 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.
