(LIVE) publishing annotates and collates Studio Jamming exhibition and events series through fifteen free publications created, printed and disseminated in Cooper Gallery DJCAD, edited by Dundee-based artists Sean Scott and Katie Reid with content by a range of contributors.

The (LIVE) publishing team will come together to create fifteen publications in June and July that collect newly written texts, responsive drawings, and photographs to collage ideas and reflection surrounding Studio Jamming. These publications will be produced on site with low-fi digital printing and special screen print overlays made in the printmaking workshops at DJCAD. All the issues will be shared with Cooper Gallery visitors who will be invited to collect their own edition throughout the project. After the exhibition one edition will be archived in the artists' books collection Dundee (abcD).

Studio Jamming: Artist's Collaborations in Scotland

Preview (with performance by GANGHUT): 28 June 2014, 6.00 – 8.00pm

Exhibition: 30 June – 2 August 2014

Taking its cue from the live improvised excitement of musical jamming, Cooper Gallery in Dundee presents Studio Jamming: Artists’ Collaborations in Scotland; the first discursive survey to foreground the grassroots character of artists’ collaboration that has contributed to the remarkable achievements of contemporary art in Scotland.

Adopting a diverse curatorial approach the project is comprised of exhibitions, a dynamic event series and a Group Critical Writing Residency, culminating in a 12-hour Jamming Symposium.

Studio Jamming is set to re-search, annotate, contextualise and celebrate artists’ collaboration as a particular phenomenon of artistic practice in Scotland. The key ingredient for this process is the Studio Jamming Hub, an architectural intervention constructed in and around Cooper Gallery that is to be designed by Studio Miessen led by Markus Miessen, an alumni of GSA and now a leading thinker in Critical Spatial Practice. Developing as a live critical discourse, the Studio Jamming Hub acts as a collaborative ‘site’ where artists, writers, architects, educators, researchers, performers, cultural thinkers and participants present, reflect upon and elaborate the possibilities and histories embedded in artists’ collaborations.

Among the highlights of Studio Jamming is the presentation of new works from artists’ collaborative groups including Graham Eatough & Graham Fagen, Full Eye, Ganghut and Henry VIII’s Wives. The artists’ collaborative groups will occupy the Studio Jamming Hub for a week each to present new works and events between 30 June – 2 August.

Studio Jamming will be annotated and collated through (LIVE) publishing, a series of free publications created, printed and disseminated in situ, edited by Sean Scott and Katie Reid.
