The theme for the first print edition of BURNAWAY Magazine 2013 is INTERIOR. We launched our Studio Visit interview column this year and have been thinking a lot about not only the process of making, but also how the site of production can change the working context. As Atlanta’s art community is very decentralized and the landscape rather horizontal, spaces pop up and are, as a majority, repurposed on an individual—and not communal—case basis. Galleries and exhibitions spaces as well are unique and most do not fit within the contemporary white cube model.
What does this mean for a city’s contemporary art scene? Does this allow flexibility or hinder curation? And, as part of a larger, picture, how does artistic output reflect this? Are artists creating work for the spaces they present the work within, or is this an afterthought? Is there a disconnect there? Does the work live its best within the studio? How does the collector base reflect this decentralization? Are collections disconnected from the local scene altogether? How are they integrated? What initiatives, programs, exhibitions have really exemplified a specific use of space? What are the myriad ways artists are utilizing “studios” within the city?
