How is art made today? This lecture will track the shift in artistic production from artisanal practice within the singular, physical space of the artist’s studio to post-studio art in multiple and open sites. In the 1960s and ’70s, Conceptual art, site-specific art, and institutional critique moved art’s emphasis from the creative authorship preserved by the studio’s enclosed environment to discourse-oriented work. We will explore the consequences of that transformation today when art objects are produced alongside “project work” and “research-based" art.

This event is only open to Sotheby’s Institute students, faculty, alumni, and staff. If you are interested in applying to our MA program and would like to attend this event, please contact admissions:
