Josh Wilson (b. 1991, Wirral) is an artist, writer and organiser of Musée Imaginaire who lives and works in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Wilson was involved in a three year collaborative project by the name of Dennis Isou; a fictional artist and third vessel for experimentation in video, performance, text and installation with Edinburgh based artist and dancer Mark Bleakley. Wilson writes regularly for thisistommorrow and Corridor8, and has had an essay published on the artist Dan Holdsworth. He has undertaken projects with Tate Britain, London; The Northern Charter, Newcastle; and A3 Project Space, Birmingham. Musée Imaginaire is a fluid and nomadic curatorial space for instigating cultural activity (performances, film screenings, lectures, exhibitions, gigs and so on) based on Andre Malraux’s concept of the museum without walls.

‘Doremifasolasido’ is a project by Jocelyn McGregor – it is an annual, peripatetic group residency that invites emerging artists from around the country to Cumbria to forge links between artists and arts organisations working in urban and rural settings. Each year artist participants are selected by partners from around the country. During the week-long residency participating artists create work, from sculpture to performance and film, in response to the site, culminating in an Open Weekend and exhibition of work made over the residency.
