The Thursday Club
18:00 – 20:00, Thursday 25th September
Room 142 Richard Hoggart Building, Goldsmiths, University of London
Lewisham Way, New Cross, London SE14 6NW


Continuing a series of seminars entitled, Art After The Internet, Janis Jefferies, Haydn Jones, Brian Condon and George Unsworth will be discussing their experiences of contemporary artistic studios and creative collaborative practices. Recent conversations have explored alternative forms of studio provision, articulating the significance of creative work, labour, and new processes of production, in the formation of artist studios.

For this Thursday Club event the working group will be reviewing their conversations with leading practitioners, as well as professionals from such organisations as ACME, SPACE Studios, V&A, Lighthouse, Watermans, and Tate. A wide reaching field of discourse, the artist’s studio today presents a site of exciting potential for collaboration, as well as new, open forms of interdisciplinary production.

How artwork today is being produced as well as disseminated online, through an enormous range of social interfaces, presents new challenges for both practitioners and the provision of space and resources for artistic production. Following the panel presentation and discussions there will be a Q&A.
