Below Another Sky presents recent works from 20 contemporary artists, 10 from Scotland and 10 from the Commonwealth countries (Australia, Canada, India and Pakistan), produced in 2013 and 2014 during a collaborative residency programme commissioned by the Scottish Print Network.

The exhibition gathers together a portfolio of 28 works produced during these residencies and recently acquired by the British Council Collection, including prints by Turner Prize nominees Jim Lambie (2005), David Shrigley (2013), Janice Kerbel (2015) and ambitious and innovative works created by UK artists Louise Hopkins, Robert Orchardson and Claire Barclay as well as international artists Emily Floyd, David Noonan, Rohini Devasher and Seher Shah among others. The collaboration between the five printing studios in Scotland and partner organisations in Antigua, Baffin Bay, Bangladesh, Canada, India, New Zealand and Zambia allowed the participating artists to broaden their practice using the resources, equipment and expertise in each location to create new works.

This is a rare opportunity to show a rich, varied and original selection of works in the field of printmaking; through the use of different materials (aluminium, paint, paper, lino) and methods (screenprint, relief print, etching, digital pigment print, photopolymer print, aquatint, lino print), these artists and their selected works highlight the different ways in which printmaking can be explored, perceived and made contemporary.
