The Studio System Experimental Residency project is a unique attempt to bridge the gap between artistic practice and the public. By opening up the processes and methodologies of a studio based approach to the engagement of a wider audience we have set the stage for you to see 'behind the scenes' as it were. You, the visitor, can directly interact with the artists to discuss inspirations, sources, thoughts, feelings, content and context as well as chart the progression through the works over the period of 29 days that the project encompasses.
This continues the TAM's dedication to exploring new ways of understanding and engaging with the art of our time and those that produce it.
We thank these artists, from Torrance, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, for their openness and generosity in committing to this unusual presentation: Sydney Croskery, Elizabeth Dorbad, Nancy Evans, Josh Hagler, Seth Kaufman, Hung Viet Nguyen, Don Porcella, Dickson Schneider, Mariangeles Soto-Diaz, Vincent Tomczyk and Valerie Wilcox.
Artist Dickson Schneider and his Free Art Cart will be distributing his art works directly to the public for free throughout this project's run.
During the month the artists will be available during open hours, Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm, to discuss their ideas, methods, materials and their thoughts with the public. The Museum is free to everyone and is located at 3320 Civic Center, Torrance, CA 90503.
The project will culminate in a Closing Reception on Saturday August 29th, 6-9 pm, to display their results and to respond to the audience.
