Project Ability has been offering artist residencies in our Trongate 103 studios for several years. These residencies are explorative in their approach and vary widely from artist to artist, year to year.
The Residency Show features just a small amount of work created during a total of ten different residencies. It’s been a pleasure to host so many artists making so many different types of work. From independently working professional artists to established and emerging artists from support studios around the U.K., Project Ability, and the artists who regularly work here, gain a lot from these experiences. Having different artists with different ideas coming and going from the studios is a real inspiration.
It is a mutually beneficial relationship which continues to bring new people and new art through our doors. Collaborations and solo projects both arise from the residencies, and no two placements are ever the same. This exhibition is a celebration of some of these people and some of the art they’ve made here.
