Scotland/Japan Residency Exchange Programme: First Residencies Announced

1 November 2018

_DSC3103c 3

We are delighted to announce that the first residencies for artists based in Scotland as part of the Scotland/Japan Residency Exchange Programme have been awarded to the Glasgow-based artist Florence Dwyer and the Edinburgh-based design curator, writer and producer Stacey Hunter.

Florence and Stacey will travel to Japan in January 2019 for eight and six-week residencies respectively with Arts Initiative Tokyo and Creative Residencies in Arita. These residencies are part of a wider residency exchange programme developed collaboratively by Cove Park, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Hospitalfield with key partners in Japan. The programme marks the British Council’s UK/Japan Season of Culture 2019/2020 and the 2020 Olympic in Tokyo. In 2019 the Scottish partners will welcome artists from Japan to their own residency programmes and, in 2020, a further two artists from Scotland will have the opportunity to work in Japan.

This programme builds upon a residency exchange developed between Cove Park and AIT between 2012 and 2014. Our partnership with ESW and Hospitalfield ensures this project can work with and support more artists and allow those artists from Japan to experience more of Scotland and work directly with some of our leading residency organisations and production facilities.

These first residencies will give Florence and Stacey a unique opportunity to work both in Tokyo and in Arita, the birthplace of Japanese porcelain, and to benefit from the skill and expertise of the ceramicists connected to CRIA’s programme.

We are grateful to AIT, CRIA, British Council Scotland and Creative Scotland for their support and to the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, Saga Prefecture International Affairs Division and the Agency of Cultural Affairs, Japan.

Travelling Gallery & Lauren Printy Currie at Cove Park

29 September 2017

a TG Press Image

Cove Park is pleased to host Scotland’s Travelling Gallery on Saturday 7 October, from 11-4pm, and to present a special event with the artist from 2.00pm.

Travelling Gallery’s autumn 2017 exhibition is by former Cove Park resident Lauren Printy Currie in partnership with Glasgow Women’s Library. Lauren works in sculpture, writing and installation creating assemblages that hybridize the material and psychological qualities of objects.

The exhibition derives from a residency at Glasgow Women’s Library where the collection and archive served as a repository from which the artist drew material and inspiration to make a new body of work for the Travelling Gallery. Exploring feminist self-organising and economies of production, this work endeavours to respond to the materiality and immateriality of the archive as an entity constantly in flux, which adds to, performs, removes and reconfigures its contents. The artist considers experiences that have been marginalised and explore the defining principles of the creation of cultural archives.

Join the artist at 2pm at Cove Park on Saturday 7 October for a series of readings, acts, exchanges, and felt proximities exploring material existence as something pliant and paradoxical.

An opportunity to hear acclaimed visual artist Abraham Cruzvillegas (born Mexico City, 1968) discuss his recent projects in conversation with Francis McKee, Director of Glasgow’s CCA. This event takes place as the artist prepares to launch the inaugural Hyundai Commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in October this year.

Abraham Cruzvillegas has received international recognition for his work, which in recent years has often been created in relation to the concept of ‘autoconstrucción’ (self-construction), which he derives from the ad-hoc house-building undertaken by his family and other migrants to Mexico City in the 1960s. Since undertaking a six-month residency at Cove Park in 2008, and as a result presenting the exhibition ‘Autoconstrucción’ at CCA in the same year, Cruzvillegas has exhibited widely. Recent solo shows include: Museo Jumex, Mexico City (2014); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2014); Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis (2013); CCA Wattis, San Francisco (2009). He has also been included in many group exhibitions, including: Sharjah Biennial (2015); The Shanghai Biennial (2012); dOCUMENTA 13 (2012) and the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011).

Tickets cost £3.00, the event begins at 6pm. To book, please click here.

/ 3 / Cove Park

New work by Lauren Printy Currie
Saturday 29 August 3-5pm, Cove Park

A special event to mark the final week of Lauren Printy Currie’s one-month visual arts residency.

Lauren creates assemblages of image, text, sound and objects that hybridise the material and spatial possibilities of objects.

This event will take place in the artist’s studio. Refreshments will be served in Oak Pod. When arriving at Cove Park, please park by the former Centre (this is now closed as work is due to begin on a new building). Signs will show the way to the studios and members of staff will be on site to help.
