Session: Making Spaces: Between Studio and Laboratory
UAAC-AAUC Annual Conference, UQÀM
Montréal, October 27–30, 2016

Please submit proposals to session chairs Emily Doucet (emily.doucet@mail.utoronto.ca) and Amy Wallace (amy.wallace@mail.utoronto.ca) by June 24, 2016.

The artist’s studio is fundamentally a site of material transformations. However, since the sixteenth century it has equally been perceived as a site of intellectual endeavour, uniting the hand and the mind of the artist in the pursuit of representation. Likewise, the idea of the laboratory has been understood as both a space of knowledge production and creative experimentation. This session will examine the manifest and latent conventions of artists’ studios that have informed artistic production. In what ways have the spaces of scientific and artistic experimentation overlapped? How have artists manipulated the studio as an instrument of artistic practice? What role have technological advancements played in changes to the studio? How have artists transcended the physical and conceptual limits of the studio? What lines can be drawn between the material conditions of the studio and an artist’s work? Proposals that address artistic production in any time period or geographic area will be considered.
