Launched on July 26, Auto Italia‘s Recent Work by Artists is a collaborative project investigating the modern artist’s working space. Running until September 28, the exhibition features “installation, image production, office design, events and a catalogue” from Tim Ivison, Julia Tcharfas, George Moustakas and Rachel Pimm.
They explore working conditions that are always shifting, between the library and the studio, the geography and distractions that doubtless have a direct impact on their output. That’s no more apparent than in an exhibition with its concept founded in these creative processes, which in turn reflects the convergence of distinctions between production, consumption, economy and design, potentially rendering them meaningless. In turn, Auto Italia places itself right at that intersection by blurring the line between art practice and home renovation by landscaping a production space in the Auto Italia site, while hosting events and discussion within it, along with ongoing research “supplemented by refreshments and environmental control selected for productivity”. Clever.
