Production residencies are aimed at contemporary visual artists who are working nationally and/or internationally for whom a change of scenery might offer fresh inspiration.
The second Production Residency artist is Siobhan Hapaska. Originally from Belfast, Hapaska now lives and works in London. Hapaska has created new work The Nose that Lost its Dog, which will be presented in the gallery 10 Nov 20009 - 30 Jan 2010. Carla Scott Fullerton who was 2008-09 GSS Graduate Fellow will also be presenting new work.

Research residencies support a writer, scholar, academic, curator or researcher working nationally and/or internationally, to support excisting projects and the development of new ideas. Sam Ainsley, David Harding & Sandy Moffat (AHM) three of Scotland's key cultural figures were selected as the recipients of the first Research Residency, which will culminate in a inter-related partnership programme with Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art in 2010.
