About12-Hour Jamming Symposium is a vital platform for discursive interrogations and speculations on the phenomena of collaboration and the ideas, art works and writings constituting Studio Jamming: Artists' Collaborations in Scotland at Cooper Gallery.
Staged in the Studio Jamming Hub at Cooper Gallery on Friday 25 July, the Jamming Symposium will construct a collaborative public 'site' to present the propositions, positions, exchanges and Declarations illuminating an expanded notion of collaboration. The symposium will open up a wider critical debate that tackles and problematises the various contexts in which collaboration is situated.
Centred on Declarations from Artists' Collaborative Groups from across Scotland the Jamming Symposium will also feature readings by writers participating in the Studio Jamming Group Critical Writing Residency and keynote talks by international and national leading thinkers whose practices invest collaboration with depth and rigour.
Keynote speakers include Stine Hebert, Maria Lind, Francis McKee and Markus Miessen. David Harding will introduce the Declarations from Artists' Collaborative Groups, the Group Critical Writing Residency readings will be led by Maria Fusco and Dominic Paterson will chair the panel discussion.
