Artist At Work Forum: Introducing Studio Chicago

Thurs. Oct 29, 6:00 - 7:30pm
Chicago Cultural Center

78 E. Washington St., Chicago
Post panel reception: Hard Rock Hotel

Studio Chicago: a collaborative project that explores the artists’ studio:  Creativity; Production; Infrastructure

  • Why and how is the studio important to art and artists today?
  • What is the artist studio today?
  • What infrastructures are needed to support art practice and production?

The City of Chicago, in partnership with leading local arts institutions, announces a year-long collaborative project, “Studio Chicago” to generate deeper, more nuanced understanding about these issues among the artist community and to broaden awareness and understanding among the “art-curious."

Chicago focuses on the Artist’s Studio, through exhibitions, talks, publications, tours, and research.  Participating organizations will celebrate the working artist and reveal their sites of creative production from historical and contemporary perspectives, with concepts ranging from the 'studio as muse’, ‘virtual studios’, ‘street as studio’ and ‘gallery as studio.’  

This Artist at Work Forum will introduce key components of Studio Chicago, and invite participation and suggestions from artists and the art-curious.  Presenters will include curator Dominic Molon (Museum of Contemporary Art); Mary Jane Jacob (School of the Art Institute of Chicago); Barbara Koenen (Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs), Chuck Thurow (Hyde Park Art Center), Shannon Stratton (Three Walls).  A reception will be held following the forum at the nearby Hard Rock Hotel to continue discussion.
