STUDIO COMPLEX / TATE EXCHANGE 2018
15/01 -21/01/2018 at Tate Modern London, Blavatnik Building
London, once a city with overlooked spaces open to occupation and experimentation, has become an increasingly difficult environment for emerging artists. Those graduating from art school now find fewer spaces in which to work, with affordable studios a thing of the past. In the five-year period between 2014 and 2019, it is predicted that 30 per cent of artists’ studios in London will be lost (see GLA’s Artists’ Workshop Study).

In response, artists are challenging and re-inventing the studio. Could it be a park bench, an online space or a public building? As artists, can we resist the tide and find new ways of reinstating art practice within the heart of the city?

"Around 200 students from Central Saint Martinswill construct fully functioning studios in Tate Exchange. Drop in and select a studio (or a series of studios) and join in a wide range of practical activities incorporating the many and diverse ways in which art is made today."
