An introduction to the work of core artists taking part in the Three Points of Contact Artist Residency linking Glasgow, York and Cornwall. The exhibition space will then turn into a studio space for the artists to work in 3-14 Dec. The exhibition is 'the interzone', occurring before the residency leg at The Glasgow School of Art and will be an opportunity to introduce the practices and begin to see possible connections between those involved.

The two selected Glasgow artists are Mark Vernon and Stuart Gurden. Vernon is a sound artist, radio producer and records and performs in the groups Vernon & Burns and Hassle Hound. Gurden works primarily with video and installation. The two York artists are Martha Jurksaitis (aka Cherry Kino) and Megan Wellington. Martha Jurksaitis works with Super 8 and 16 mm film, which she chemically processes and edits by hand. Megan Wellington's practice lies mainly in photography. The Cornwall artists are the collective TAap and Ann Haycock. TAap work across the disciplines of performance, sculpture, film and social engagement. Haycock is a performance artist. The international artists selected for this pilot year are Portuguese duo von Calhau! They make work across experimental music, performance and printmaking. They live and work in Porto.

Three Points of Contact is a new roving residency and evolving network that creates the opportunity for curators to work together, bringing international artists into contact with UK artists at contrasting locations. The residency sets up as an experimental space in each participating gallery, where the artists can research and develop ideas through collaborative experiments, dialogue and public interaction. The core artists group will be joined by different regional artists at each venue. In the pilot year the residency begins in York at the New School House Gallery and then travels to The Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh Museum, then Exchange Gallery Penzance.

Three Points of Contact Artist Residency runs 3-14 Dec in the Mackintosh Museum and will see this space transformed into a working studio for the group of artists involved.

Three Points of Contact Residency is funded by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

The project has been devised by curators Judit Bodor (York); Blair Todd (Deputy Director, The Exchange and Newlyn Galleries) and Jenny Brownrigg (Exhibitions Director, The Glasgow School of Art). 

The project is supported by The Glasgow School of Art; The New School House Gallery, York; York St John University; The Exchange & Newlyn Galleries, Cornwall.
