Production Site: The Artist's Studio Inside - Out Lecture Series
Andrea Zittel: Studio as Testing Ground
April 5, 2010, 6:00 pm
Museum of Contemporary Art
220 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago

Co-presented with Gallery 400, the College of Architecture and the Arts, University of Illinois at Chicago

Internationally renowned artist Andrea Zittel speaks about her work and describes how her studio in the high desert of California serves both as a space for exploration and as a place for crafting and presenting objects, materials, spaces and ideas. Zittel’s sculptures and installations transform everything necessary for life -- such as eating, sleeping, bathing, and socializing -- into experiments in living. Andrea Zittel is an assistant professor of the Roski School of Fine Arts at the University of Southern California, who has had many solo exhibitions worldwide. Zittel has also organized the smockshop, "an artist run enterprise that generates income for artists whose work is either non-commercial, or not yet self sustaining" by selling smocks; and High Desert Test Sites, "a series of experimental art sites" which "provide alternative space for experimental works by both emerging and established artists."
