Yuck n Yum
YYADA (Yuck n Yum Art Distribution Unit)
Dundee-based Yuck ‘n Yum is a distribution conduit for emerging artists. They promote local, national and international artists through a quarterly art ‘zine, as well as organising events in and around Dundee.
At the Cupar Arts Festival 2009 YNY gave away free art. They commissioned artists, past contributors to the zine, to create limited-run special edition artworks ranging from pots of marmalade to prints.
The artists were: Luke Collins, Sanna Dyker, Derek Lodge, Anna Orton, Sam Spreckley, Andrew Maclean, Amy Todman, Kevin McPhee, Nadia Rossi, Ben Robinson, Ewan Manson and Gayle Meikle.
The works were distributed to the general public by the Yuck ‘n Yum Art Distribution Agents (YYADA for short). The distribution team was comprised of volunteers, who shuttled between the festival venues, each easily identifiable by their Yuck ‘n Yum branded skip hat, knapsack and sunny disposition. The agents handed out the free art whilst informing the public of the ‘artist of the day’ and the festival.
