Whether they’re doing residencies or research, teaching or travel, or whether they’re simply responding to the contingencies of affordable and available studio space, artists today are in constant motion. What’s the marker of the artist’s studio in this peripatetic climate? Is the artist’s “desk” a piece of furniture, an anchored object? Or is it something they can pick up and carry away—a laptop or notebook that travels with them wherever they go?... [more]

What does the interior architecture of the artist's workspace tell us about their process and practice? In psychoanalytic terms, perhaps what's in the artist's studio is what's on the artist's mind. In our times, though, the spaces artists inhabit are quite different to the cavernous, secluded spaces of the past: they've had to adapt to a more migratory lifestyle, and have succumbed to the economic squeeze in urban centers. The only universal marker left of the resplendent artist's studio, reall... [more]

What defines a space if not its imagined intentions? Or, more literally, when does the projected image of a site’s ideal function supersede its realization, and become the very thing it projects? Such is the case with Mana Contemporary, an elaborate multi-use art center currently being renovated in Pilsen’s industrial Cermak corridor, which if a shorthand history of shared art spaces were any indicator, would belong to the 19th century Salon in Paris as much as it does to a sleek, atel...

59 Rivoli- Squart Collective[1]59 Rue de RivoliParisOngoing Number 59 Rivoli was abandoned for fifteen years before it was squatted by a group of artists in 1999. After a couple of years of wrangling and campaigning the building was bought by the municipal government of Paris[2], renovated to make it safe, and passed over to the collective, who had now formalised their existence under the name '59 Rivoli'. I visited it as it seems to be an example of the kind of progressive attitude to supporting... [more]
