The Studio Reader - On The Space Of Artists

Catalog Number:

Date: 
2010
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
From the back cover:"The Studio Reader pulls back the curtain to reveal the activities behind artistic production. What does it mean to be in the studio? What is the space of the studio in the artist's practice? How do studios help artists envision their agency and, beyond that, their entire lives? This forward-thinking anthology brings together artists, curators, each of whom locates the studio both spatially and conceptually at the center of an art world that increasingly crosses institutions, markets, and disciplines."
