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