Studio75’s final project
Several Skeletons from the Same Closet
It is now the beginning of 2013 and it is time to look back on the last two years of Studio75. We started the studio in January 2011. We wanted to create an artist-led space for both production of our own work, and for creating small exhibitions with different artists. These last two years have been exceptional. The studio has also been influential for most of the artists who have worked with us. A small ground floor studio flat in a council block became a cultural hub and a Bohemian refuge, gathering in a broad variety of people, artists and audiences.
However as you may already be aware, the physical space of Studio75 will soon cease to exist, as the whole block will be pulled down. Actually it should have gone almost 3 months ago, but for building delays.
Yet Studio75 will continue to exist, as a network of artist, friends, as an online organisation and presence until we find a new venue, and as an active inspiring framework.
Given that the Studio is in its last weeks, we will use the remaining time to share with our audience the bigger bulk of the work that has been produced here. Most of our visitors have come for the fortnightly exhibitions and Open Studios, and may not be aware that every single day of the week the studio is used as a production space. So, now we’ll let the skeletons out of the closet.
