This working exhibition explores the relationship between an artist and their studio as well as the institutional support needed to continue producing artwork post-graduation.
At this Museum of New Art site [aka Galerie Camille], 6 recent graduates from Cranbrook Academy of Art will receive a 12x12ft studio space for one month.
Participating artists include:
