In the Artist's Studio: Featuring Warren Chang
Warren Chang: In the Artist’s Studio
January 31-April 14, 2019
Internationally acclaimed artist Warren Chang will be featured in the In the Artist’s Studio exhibition series. Visitors are invited into Chang’s studio for an introduction to his work, creative process and life as an artist. In this virtual studio visit, a selection of the artist’s works, art making tools and personal items, along with rarely seen photographs of private studio spaces - rarely open to the public - are on view. Chang will also conduct an informal presentation and demonstration of his artmaking process at NUMU on Saturday, April 13, from 2-3pm.
An artist’s studio is both a sacred creative space and a functional workshop, each as unique as the individual artist. The studios of artists provide a treasure trove of insight into their practices and personas. Examples from art history include painter Francis Bacon, known for working amongst a disheveled hoard of creative material. Georgia O’Keefe’s adobe home studio is filled with found bone fragments and rocks, and punctuated with windows that provide magnificent views - all informed and inspired her creative process. Constantin Brancusi’s workspace was chock-full with not only his sculptures, but also his own handmade furniture.
