Glasgow Print Studio is proud to present a selection of works created through the Below another sky international residency programme to support new work in print by leading artists from Scotland and Commonwealth countries.
This exhibition includes work by 14 of the twenty artists that participated in Below another sky.
In 2012 Scotland’s five professional print studios, based in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, came together to invite 20 nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to take part in Below another sky: a new programme of residencies, research trips and commissions. The invitation was made to 10 artists based in or originating from Scotland and, with Glasgow’s role as host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in mind, to 10 artists from Australia, Canada, India and Pakistan. Those artists based in Scotland were given the opportunity to travel to a Commonwealth country of their choice and the international artists were invited to Scotland to be based in one of the five cities.
All of the artists were commissioned to produce new work in print with the studios and to take full advantage of each organisation’s range of equipment and professional expertise. The residencies and research trips were all self-directed: the artists, when deciding where to travel to or what work to finally produce, were not asked to respond to a predetermined theme, but were instead given the freedom to pursue their own research interests, to use the opportunity to develop new ideas and explore new ways of working.
