    Cooper Summer Residency 2016 : Cullinan Richards


    The annual Cooper Summer Residency invites artists, writers and thinkers to reflect upon and experiment with new ideas and strategies that extend or further explore their practice. It also creates a social and discursive situation for dialogues and debates to take place between residency artists, writers, thinkers? and interested publics, providing an alternative way to encounter, reflect and critique the plurality of contemporary culture.


    For the 2016 iteration of the Residency we are delighted to collaborate with Scotland’s Jute Museum @ Verdant Works to host artist duo Cullinan Richards, whose residency is integral to Cooper Gallery’s forthcoming programme Of Other Spaces: Where Does Gesture Become Event?.

    Responding to the context of Scotland’s Jute Museum @ Verdant Works and the proud history of strong working women’s culture in Dundee’s jute mills of the early 20th century, the artists have devised workshops in this spirit for local Brownie groups including a screening, rope making using Jute from Verdant Works, choreographing a ‘Mushroom Dance’, and outdoor activities to explore ideas of collaboration, creativity, self-reliance and expressiveness. The workshops will take place at Verdant Works and Hospitalfield in Arbroath.
