In a climate of economic instability, and at a time when artistic practices are continuing to diversify, the symposium aims to explore a number of modes of studio practice. How does exposure to different models of the studio within art school impact on how artists use a studio upon graduation? How do studio groups differ in their support of artist’s practices? What is the relationship between artists and their assistants?
Speakers include a number of prominent art educators; studio groups from a range of different cities; artists and academics who will discuss the practices of artists who employ teams of assistants within their studios.
