About

Images of artists' studios, such as the paint-encrusted chaos of Francis Bacon's rooms, have become the stuff of popular imagination. But as contemporary art has radically changed since the 1960s, is the traditional idea of the studio in part obsolete? Jens Hoffmann, Director of the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco and Curator of the 12th Istanbul Biennial and 9th Shanghai Biennial, looks at the studio as a window to the artist, and the latest debates and perspectives on the studio. This event launches the latest anthology in the Documents of Contemporary Art series: The Studio (Whitechapel Gallery and MIT Press).
