Cooper Summer Residency is an annual programme for artists, writers and thinkers to reflect upon and experiment with ideas and strategies that will extend their practice. It is a social and discursive situation for dialogues and debates to take place between residency artists, writers, thinkers and publics, providing an alternative way to encounter, reflect and critique the plurality of contemporary culture.

The 2018 edition of Cooper Summer Residency is an online residency and unique platform for critical and cross-disciplinary conversations. With Dundee fast becoming a destination on the global cultural map, Cooper Gallery subversively invites a counter dialogue to explicate the relationships between architecture, urban planning, sustainability, collective consciousness and contemporary art. Lorens Holm, Director of Geddes Institute for Urban Research at the University of Dundee, will engage in a four-week correspondence with preeminent contemporary artist Paul Noble preceding Noble's upcoming exhibition Politics of Small Places alongside works from the Geddes Archive Collections at the University of Strathclyde, which will be exhibited at Cooper Gallery in September.

The Residency will culminate in an in-conversation event between Holm and Noble at the preview of the exhibition Politics of Small Spaces on Thursday 13 September at Cooper Gallery.

The correspondence between Holm and Noble and Holm's reflection on the pioneering Scottish urban planner Patrick Geddes' thinking will be presented across Cooper Gallery's website, social media channels and Group Critical Writing site.
