AboutVisiting Arts' Artist-to-artist enables artists from the UK to invite artists from overseas for up to 2 weeks. The events listed are participants in Artist-to-artist 2010: Doa Aly, Volkan Aslan, Ali Cherri, Robin Deacon, Delta Arts, Iz Oztat, and the Western Alliance.
What is an artist studio today? Artist-to-artist participants explore ideas around collaboration, mobility and site-specifity in relation to their working environments.
The space where artists work often represents an interface for their professional practice, in which four components play an important role: social architecture, spatial architecture, peer exchange and cultural context. Workspaces proposes to look at artists' relationships to their working environment, considered both in a spatial and interpersonal sense.
How are artistic workspaces reshaped by international mobility? How does the place where one lives influences one's practice? Have identification and contextualization remained the main two modes through which artists relate to the place where they live and work? How do international artistic networks alter artists' perception of their immediate environment? How can we update the late 20th century fantasy of an ultra-mobile artistic community, who envisions the âworld as its studio', in the light of a new geo-political and environmental order? How are artistic practices, networks and support structures responding to this change?
All events are taking place at The Delfina Foundation (unless otherwise stated)
