MMIM (May Meet In Mutual) is a collaboration between Emma Reid & Katie Reid. Our aim is to bring together artists (in the widest sense) to develop and share their ideas through research, practice, and dialogue.
We have an on-going interest in working site-responsively and through open-source methodologies. Due to this, the site plays a formative role within each project.
MMIM (Katie Reid and Emma Reid) organised MMIM: Plus-One, a three day residency on Friday 29, Saturday 30, and Sunday 31 July 2016. A group of artists, designers, and philosophers took part and the residency was hosted by New Glasgow Society and sponsored by Cass Art.

An initial group of residents were asked to invite a ‘plus-one’ to participate in the residency in a move towards expanding the network of influences while remaining an interconnected unit.
This deliberately short residency acted as a stimulus. Residents worked through new ideas with an acutely aware audience (each other), and explored how this newly formed group, MMIM: Plus-One, could work collectively/collaboratively/in correlation, and progress toward future projects.
We are delighted that Cass Art supported this project by donating materials for the residents to use during MMIM: Plus-One.
The inaugural project took place in August 2014 when MMIM curated May Meet In Mutual, an exhibition and events series exploring site-responsive practice. Alongside the exhibition of new site-responsive work by Sogol Mabadi, Emma Reid and Craig Thomson the project included MMIM Micro Residency, an Open Install, Preview with Open Stage, and Conversation event with invited speakers, Beth Savage and Annie Crabtree.
The collaboration MMIM, as well as the framework of the initial project, developed with a particular site in mind; Park Centre, Baxter Park, Dundee.
