We are delighted to be able to launch our first commissioned Friend’s Print by artist Amy Jones.
In the future, when someone becomes a Friend of Hospitalfield they will be gifted a print from the annual Friends’ Print Commission. Each year we will invite a different artist to use the print studio at Hospitalfield in order to make a new edition.
Amy Jones is an artist based in Dundee. In 2017 she was selected for a residency programme in London at THIStudios, an opportunity established by Hospitalfield as part of our DD Programme. As well as developing her work as an artist Amy also curates projects and is a Co-Founder of Dundee Print Collective. She studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (2010) and is interested in collaborative practices as a way of making, often creating opportunities to explore ideas in dialogue with others. Most recent projects include; Two Nights Stands, Dundee Print Collective collaboration with Lynda Morris, (Cooper Gallery) and HERE, Glasgow International (DEUCE DEUCE).
Hospitalfield’s DD Progamme takes advantage of our networks nationally and internationally to develop opportunities for artists to work in new settings where they can develop their work and their networks. The programme with THIStudios is a three year programme. Over a period of three years three artists from Dundee will be hosted in London and Hospitalfield will host artists from the studio in London within our residency progammes. Other opportunities and exchanges for DD Artists have been established in Leipzig in Germany at Halle 14, also at Alice Yard in Trinidad and we are working on a number of other projects.
In 2018 we will arrange a studio visit with Amy as part of the Friends’ Programme, so if you are interested to know more about her work and would like to visit her studio with us then we look forward to seeing you there. The full Friend’s programme will be circulated early next year.
We would be delighted if you would consider becoming a Friend of Hospitalfield, you can learn more about this way of supporting us and enjoying the programme here…
