Fall Open Studios 2013

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Fall Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 29 artists from 19 countries currently in residence present work in their studios. The studio is a generative space – part production site, office, laboratory and situation – and it can be argued that it is more significant today for artistic process than ever before. Open Studios invites the public to 29 studio visits to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with artists from all over the world.

Salon: Ruth Campau and Petr Šprincl

Ruth Campau will speak about her ideas in regard to the practice of infinite painting and how she communicates human presence with a brushstroke. She will also discuss the ritual and the mechanical stroke of the body when executing a painting and how this signifies a particular place and time.

Petr Šprincl will present his Super 8mm documentary film series that deal with personal memories as told through abstract stories that cause the viewer to question whether the stories are truth or fiction. He will end with a short presentation of a recent performative project that combines music and theater.
