Lecture and artist talk about the studio
Wouter Davidts will in his lecture ”You specify it, we fabricate it: The art of production” talk about studio production refering to different examples. Starting point will be the conceptualist turn in studio production, a turn that was initiated by Tony Smith’s ”Die”, a sculpture of which he ordered the production by simply telling the instructions over the phone to the steel company.
Wouter Davidts is professor of modern and contemporary art at VU University in Amsterdam and co-editor of the book “The Fall of the Studio. Artists at Work”. After the lecture follows an artist talk with Maria Hedlund, Carl Hammoud and curator Tessa Praun from Magasin 3. They will share their view on the studio and their work process. Exhibition and café are open from 5 pm. Free admission.
