For their Studio Jamming Hub Week, Full Eye have invited artist Katherine MacBride to lead a group workshop using a DIY approach to explore composer Pauline Oliveros's collaborative deep listening exercises. The event is intended to be an exploratory and inclusive collaborative peer group exercise. The workshop will involve some gentle body-based relaxation exercises; improvised individual and group composition exercises using clapping, walking and breathing rhythms; some initial attempts at tuning into deep listening; some feedback and talking through of what is happening and perhaps some further exercises that put everything together at the end (time-allowing).
Workshop suitable for all (16+), please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.

Taking its cue from the live improvised excitement of musical jamming, Cooper Gallery in Dundee presents Studio Jamming: Artists’ Collaborations in Scotland; the first discursive survey to foreground the grassroots character of artists’ collaboration that has contributed to the remarkable achievements of contemporary art in Scotland. Among the highlights of Studio Jamming is the presentation of works from artists’ collaborative groups including Graham Eatough & Graham Fagen, Full Eye, GANGHUT and Henry VIII’s Wives. The artists’ collaborative groups occupy the Studio Jamming Hub, a structural intervention designed by Studio Miessen, for a week each to present new works and events between 30 June – 2 August.
