The exhibition marking the culmination of Cooper Summer Residency 2015: Thingness?
Artists: Oliver Braid, Anouchka Oler.
Philosopher: Joseph Fletcher.


In July Cooper Gallery hosted Glasgow based artist Oliver Braid, Brussels based artist Anouchka Oler and Edinburgh/Gateshead based philosopher Joseph Fletcher. During the residency, the artists and philosopher discussed and reflected upon the possibility of Object Oriented Ontology as a mode of interpretation with which to encounter contemporary art practices. This has led to a body of new works and an online publication which will be presented in the exhibition and on the Cooper Gallery website. 

Cooper Summer Residency is a space for artists, writers and thinkers to reflect upon and experiment with new ideas and strategies that will extend their practice. It is also a social and discursive situation for dialogues and debates to take place between residency artists, writers, thinkers and interested publics, providing an alternative way to encounter, reflect and critique the plurality of contemporary culture.

Before the preview, there will be an In Conversation event with the artists and philosopher at 4.30pm in Cooper Gallery. 

Anouchka Oler's participation in the exhibition is kindly supported by Fluxus Art Projects
