Yuck 'n Yum Art Distribution Unit
Dundee-based Yuck 'n Yum is a distribution conduit for emerging artists. We promote local, national and international artists through a quarterly art ‘zine, as well as organising events in and around Dundee. At this year's festival we will be giving away free art. We have commissioned artists, who are past contributors to the zine, to create limited-run special edition artworks ranging from pots of marmalade to prints.
The artists are: Luke Collins, Sanna Dyker, Derek Lodge, Anna Orton, Sam Spreckley, Andrew Maclean, Amy Todman, Kevin McPhee, Nadia Rossi, Ben Robinson, Ewan Manson and Gayle Meikle.
The works will be distributed to the general public by the Yuck 'n Yum Art Distribution Agents [YYADA for short]. The distribution team is comprised of volunteers, who will shuttle between the festival venues, each easily identifiable by their Yuck 'n Yum branded skip hat, knapsack and sunny disposition. The agents will hand out the free art whilst informing the public of the 'artist of the day' and the festival.
There will also be an accompanying blog, in which each YYADA will detail their day of distribution. Information on all of the featured artists can also be found here. Check out the blog at www.cupar09.yucknyum.com
We are looking for volunteers to become YYADA's for the day. This is a great opportunity to get involved, engage with the festival and get to know Cupar. Each YYADA will receive travel expenses, a free home cooked lunch plus their very own YYADA hat! This is a great opportunity to experience how an artist run organisation works as well as learning about current trends within contemporary art.
