NOW AT THE MCA:
February 6, 2010 - May 30, 2010
Throughout art history, artists have reflexively looked at the very site where art work is produced -- the studio -- as a source of inspiration for their work. Production Sitereexamines the artist's studio as subject, presenting work that documents, depicts, reconstructs, or otherwise invokes that space, revealing how the studio functions as a place where research, experimentation, production, and social activity intersect.
The exhibition reflects and addresses the pivotal role of the studio in artists' practice while alluding to its enduring status in the popular imagination. The works that comprise Production Site include multi-channel video projections, photographic light-boxes and installations, and life-sized fabrications of artists' studios -- real and imagined -- that either extol the virtues of the studio or problematize the preconceived and often highly romanticized notions associated with it. The exhibition provides the viewer with an unprecedented and illuminating look at how some of the most compelling artists of our time have demystified, remystified, and reconsidered this site within the physical and conjectured space of the work of art.
Many fantastic reviews, all yours for only $7 or FREE on Tuesdays!
