Bas Residencies

A major new programme for 2013 and 2014 commissioned by the Scottish Print Network

Below another sky is the first collaborative programme developed by the Scottish Print Network, a partnership between Dundee Contemporary Arts, Edinburgh Printmakers, Glasgow Print Studio, Highland Print Studio, Inverness and Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen.

We have invited 10 artists from Scotland and 10 from Commonwealth countries to undertake research residencies during 2013 and 2014. Artists from Scotland are travelling to Antigua, Canada, India, Malawi and New Zealand; artists from Australia, Canada, India and Pakistan will be on residency in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

Each artist is working with one of the five print studios on the development of ambitious and innovative new work in print, taking full advantage of the excellent range of resources, equipment and expertise available through each organisation.

Below another sky takes its name from the poem ‘Travel’, published in 1865 by the Edinburgh-born author Robert Louis Stevenson. Travel – both actual and imaginary – was central to Stevenson’s work and his final years were spent on a Samoan island, now a member of the Commonwealth.

This website documents each residency and the works in print produced by the artists as a result. It showcases a series of exhibitions, events and workshops organized by all five studios to run in parallel with the residencies during 2013 and 2014. Below another sky culminates with an exhibition of all the work produced by the artists at Glasgow Print Studio during the time of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Below another sky is part of Creative Futures, a Creative Scotland talent development programme which aims to promote the professional development, capabilities, connectivity and ambitions of Scotland’s creative pracitioners and organisations.
