The exhibition In the Studio is the outcome of Daily Lazy Projects’s online documentation showcasing images from artists’s ateliers along with descriptions of their studio practices and workplace environments (see “In the Studio”: http://daily-lazy.blogspot.de/search/label/In%20The%20Studio). The project was launched in December 2011 and is still in progress; currently the list includes contemporary artists based in Athens, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Istanbul, Zürich, Basel, Frankfurt, Florence, Valletta, Cluj-Napoca, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Rome, Washington, North Carolina, Stockholm, Bratislava, Rotterdam, Tampere, Dusseldorf , San Francisco, and more.

In the Studio will display the work of selected artists, concentrating on the presentation of in-progress and unfinished artworks, sketches, maquettes, and models, and other objects taken from the artists’s studios. The exhibition will attempt to expose the process of artistic practice, to portray art as a procedure and an activity, and to document the private milieu of the artist studio.

About Kunsthalle Athena

Kunsthalle Athena is a flexible art centre dedicated to the visual culture of our time. Its major objective is to reintroduce contemporary art and its significance to a genuine public sphere, prioritizing the possibility of co-producing and thus extending culture. Drawing on creative sources of varied origins and providing a vital core of social interaction and exchange, Kunsthalle Athena is constantly informed by the idiosyncrasy and distinctiveness of Athens and its public. Our desire is to emphasize the constant transformation of ‘the polis’ as a symbolic location for the production and dissemination of contemporary culture worldwide. Founded in 2010, Kunsthalle Athena is an initiative of curator and writer Marina Fokidis and remains grateful to its many friends for their generosity and spirit of solidarity.
