A day-long series of talks and panel discussions relating to the idea of an "Artist Studio"
Panel 1: The Artist's Studio in Context is an art history discussion, in which the artist's studio is taken to be a microcosm of the ‘art world’, and reflects on the studio’s role as space which inspires production and a space for thought. Given that the artist's studio is a private space, what happens when it is transplanted into the grounds of a commercial gallery? Further examples and critique of contemporary art, and the role of branding, design and communication in the studio’s engagement with its surroundings will also be discussed. The discussion will be delivered by Bala Starr, director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, and artist Mike HJ Chang.
