Yuck 'n Yum - Summer Launch and Impact Residency Artist Announced

The Yuck ‘n Yum summer 2013 launch is coming, and it’s all set to be our biggest, loudest, most spectacular event yet! From Tuesday 18th June we’re taking over Glasgow’s leading arts venue the Arches to bring you a show that will reinvent DJing as a performative artwork. We’ll be pitched up in the foyer and entrance spaces until July 22nd, and we’d love to have you join us. With acclaimed acts including Stefan Blomeier, TYCI collective, Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd.

Paying homage to the legendary Euro Dance rave at Prestwick Airport, Street Rave parties at the Ayr Pavilion and subsequently Colours at the Arches, Stefan Blomeier will present a selection of music rooted in the sound of Acid house, chronicling the history of Scottish rave culture throughout the 1990s. Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd promise to enthrall you with a space Moog experience with abstract humorous homologies, and TYCI will perform a theatrical DJ extravaganza.

Zines, music, art and performance are all guaranteed!

Launch event and performance 18th of June  6-8, the Arches, Glasgow. Exhibition runs until the 22nd of July featuring current cover artist Cos Ahmet, Stefan Blomeier, Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd, and TYCI collective.

 In other news, we are excited to announce the winner of the Impact Residency: Beatrice Haines. Out of over 110 applications, London-based artist Beatrice Haines has been selected to work within Abertay University’s ground-breaking forensic science department this summer, as the University’s artist-in-residence.

Spending up to four days in the lab with Dr Kevin Farrugia, Beatrice will explore the many ways in which print visualisation techniques – such as chemical enhancement and specialised photography – can be manipulated to recover finger- and shoeprints from crime scenes.

The purpose of the residency is to produce a work of art that will be exhibited at the inaugural Print Festival Scotland – a celebration of the cultural diversity, historical significance and future potential of print.

The Festival will run alongside the world renowned Impact8 International Printmaking Conference, which will be held this year in Dundee.
