Home Making and Art Making: Embodying Studio Shifts
Panel members: Harmony Wolfe (chair), Nina Caporale, Summer Zickefoose

I will be sitting/speaking/presenting on a panel discussion entitled: "Home Making and Art Making: Embodying Studio Shifts" for the 2016 MACAA Conference meeting in Cincinnati October 26-28, 2016!  What will we be discussing?...

This panel explores the role of home and hospitality in “post‐studio” art practices.  Art collectives such as Mildred’s Lane and homeLA: a performance project are gathering in homes, transforming them into galleries or using bedrooms or backyards as sites of production and welcoming spectators into traditionally private spaces.  How is the place of home as a studio transforming art practices?  How is this re‐configuring a definition of home?  How are ideas of hospitality latent or projected through these projects?  In providing a forum for the discussion of the role of home and hospitality in art practices from the perspective of artists, makers, theorists, historians, and designers, this session aims to explore how artistic practices are perhaps re‐negotiating home, hospitality and traditions of artist studios.

Here's what the panel will look like:

Nina Caporale, Independent Artist
“One working artist, AirBnB, and a shared economy”

Summer Zickefoose, Westminister College
"Hospitality and Friending – negotiated relationships in the Visiting Series"

Harmony Wolfe, Independent Scholar, Panel Chair
“Ameliorating Loneliness and Shame Resiliency: Notes on CHAR”

This year's conference will be held at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP, my alma mater!).  More information, including conference registration, can be found on the Mid-America College Art Association website, here

I had heard that a more precise schedule of individual sessions was to be published on July 1st, including dates and times for each.  I don't see that yet, but I suppose it should get published/released any day now?!
