ITS THE LAST WEEK TO APPLY FOR THIS YEARS REMOTE RESIDENCY!
*
THE GOOD PRESS REMOTE RESIDENCY
A body of work and exhibition opening 30th April, closing 31st May 2014
We are inviting applications 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 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, we’d like to see - 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.
Please e-mail applications with the title ‘REMOTE RESIDENCY’ to info@goodpressgallery.co.uk
Any questions to the same e-mail address pleeeease.
DOWNLOAD THIS INFORMATION AND THEN A LITTLE MORE HERE
The DEADLINE for applications is SUNDAY 23RD MARCH 2014.
Thank You and Good Luck!

To us, the Web is a sort of shared external memory. We do not have to remember unnecessary details: dates, sums, formulas, clauses, street names, detailed definitions. It is enough for us to have an abstract, the essence that is needed to process the information and relate it to others. Should we need the details, we can look them up within seconds. Similarly, we do not have to be experts in everything, because we know where to find people who specialise in what we ourselves do not know, and whom we can trust. People who will share their expertise with us not for profit, but because of our shared belief that information exists in motion, that it wants to be free, that we all benefit from the exchange of information. Every day: studying, working, solving everyday issues, pursuing interests. We know how to compete and we like to do it, but our competition, our desire to be different, is built on knowledge, on the ability to interpret and process information, and not on monopolising it.

Taq-i Kisra, the only visible ruins of the ancient city of Ctesiphon. Located in the modern town of Salman Pak, Iraq.

Largest city in the world until its fall in 637. The arch was part of the imperial palace.
