Welcoming gobscure, our new artist in residence
We're excited to welcome a new artist in residence – gobscure is a writer-performer-artist who will be collaborating with our studio team over the next few months to explore printmaking as a form of protest and performance. Working with different printmaking techniques and formats, exploring our building inside and out and engaging our communities, this residency will challenge and disrupt and we can’t wait to get started.
‘as disruptor-in-residence we’re looking forward to playful-poetic-political creative-resistances. in this printmaking residency we'll work on putting prints in folks hands - perhaps as posters, propaganda, zines or street-art. we want to rewrite futures, there’s always more than one narrative.’
