We are very excited for this weekend’s Open Studios with Workspace artists in residence at 28 Liberty!
If you have not RSVP’d already, please do so! The two-day event is free, and the more the merrier. In the mean time, please enjoy this recent press including a fantastic interview with artist in residence, Tamar Ettun.
My workspace is very important to me, since the process of creation forces me to be as open and receptive as I can be. Everything that surrounds me enters right inside me. Like, having no immune system. I have been very lucky to receive support from many residency programs, and the best thing about them is meeting other artists that challenge and inspire me. Now, I am in the LMCC Workspace program, at the center of the financial district, which is a very strange location. I notice my movements are faster and more efficient walking down the street, being surrounded by this capitalist practical environment brings out constant anxiety about ambition and productivity, on the other hand our studio floor is vast. It’s the only place I know in New York that you can see objects get smaller as you walk away from them in the same space. I can make larger gestures, expand, have an imaginary horizon line for my sculptures. – Tamar Ettun interviewed by The Creator’s Project.
