New York City, 13 February 2019, 8:30-10:00am – The Studio as Market (Chaired by Julie Codell, Arizona State University) – TIAMSA-Session at the CAA (College Art Association) Conference; Location: New York Hilton Midtown, 3rd floor, Grand Ballroom West
Artists’ studios have been the site of workshops, collaboration, promotion, mystery, and myth, at times considered a hallowed space, at other times a disreputable one. They have also been the places of social, political, and economic transactions that shape aesthetic values. In the studio artists self-fashioned their social status and promoted their works. They invited critics, dealers, and patrons into their studios, turning the latter into sites that combined a presumed mysterious creative energy with economic exchange while purposely misapprehending economic considerations. This session will explore how artists – facing dwindling church and aristocratic patronage from the eighteenth century on – strategically entered the “free” market by using their studios to promote and sell works in conjunction with creating marketable public identities to engage buyers and generate symbolic capital for their name and their work.
