The Studio, an art show examining the role of the artist's studio in the creative process opens Friday 1 December at the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in Dublin, Ireland. Inspired by the studio of Irish painter Francis Bacon which is housed at the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, The Studio features works by Andy Warhol, John Baldessari, Thomas Demand, Urs Fischer, Martin Kippenberger, Paul McCarthy, Bruce Nauman, Dieter Roth and Wolfgang Tillmans. The show will explore the changes in the significance of the artist studio in a cultural moment where the art world becomes more idea-based and less about skill. The gallery will also host a symposium "Beyond the Studio" on the role of the artist's studio in creative production today featuring various internationally renowned artists, curators and critics. A publication featuring photography of the installations of all the works in the show as well as writings by curators Jens Hoffmann and Christina Kennedy will be available from the museum's bookshop and online.
