The artist's studio is in dire standing, or, at least, so many critics and artists would have one believe. In recent decades, this customary space used for artistic creation and production has been discussed widely, yet mostly in a casually negative form. Any praise is by definition considered to be ideologically suspect. Indeed, ever since artists embarked upon the radical program of questioning and eventually overturning the traditional and conventional modes of production, circulation, and reception of artworks in the late 1960s, the studio has suffered a series of tragic blows. It became a prime target for critique, was declared to have fallen, and finally lost both its conventional prominence and mythical stature — its putative station as "imagination's chamber." To many artists, the space not only accommodated, but, above all, represented a type of artistic practice, material production, and creative identity that they wished to supersede or avoid altogether. "Deliverance from the confines of the studio," wrote Robert Smithson in 1968, "frees the artist to a degree from the snares of craft and the bondage of creativity."

Excerpt is from Wouter Davidts and Kim Paice's The Fall of the Studio: Artists at Work.

The Fall of The Studio

Artists at Work

Published by Valiz
Text by Wouter Davidts, Kim Paice, Julia Gelshorn, MaryJo Marks, Kirsten Swenson, et al.

Valiz's Antennae series picks up new currents in the arts and commissions essays that transmit current waves of thought. The Fall of the Studio: Artists at Work, a collection of new essays examining the role and significance of the artist's studio in the cultural production and criticism of the second half of the twentieth century, is its first publication. It critically assesses the changes that have occurred in the nature and function of the artist's studio from the postwar period on. A blend of art history, art criticism and art theory, written in an accessible, non-academic style, the book illuminates a number of artists' studio habits--from the 1960s through the present--including Eva Hesse, Mark Rothko, Olafur Eliasson, Bruce Nauman, Robert Morris, Daniel Buren, Martin Kippenberger, Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades and Jan De Cock.
