A symposium on the role of the studio in creative production today.

Organised by Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in association with the National College of Art & Design, Dublin, and the National Sculpture Factory, Cork.

As part of THE STUDIO exhibition an international symposium on the role of the studio in creative production today will take place in Dublin on February 8 and 9, 2007.

BEYOND THE STUDIO will examine the relevance, role and function of the studio today and pose a range of questions such as: What is the studio within the diverse and competing terms of contemporary art practice? Is there a tension between the studio as a workshop and the studio as both a space and an object of spectacle? How might we approach the lived experience of inhabiting and operating the studio? In terms of the economy of objects what are the multiple relays between the studio and the museum? What is the location of the studio for the multiple nomadic practices of contemporary culture? The city as studio: how do we conceive of the extension of the studio? What makes the studio such a topical matter for discussion? In what ways do contemporary discourses on the studio continue or diverge from earlier discussions? Is the studio a place; a situation; an activity; a fetish; a space of sociability; a zone of autonomy; a vestigial limb or an undisclosed possibility?

Speakers include internationally active artists, curators and critics: Iwona Blazwick, Daniel Buren, Gerard Byrne, Thomas Demand, Claire Doherty, Andrew Grassie, Jens Hoffmann, Christina Kennedy, Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, John Miller and Karen Wright.

BEYOND THE STUDIO is part of a series of events organised in conjunction with the exhibition THE STUDIO, curated by Jens Hoffmann and Christina Kennedy, on view at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane until 25 February 2007.
