Our Studio Selves

In this special Art Forum event, independent curator Jasmin Stephens will discuss the changing role of the studio in relation to her exhibition, Our Studio Selves, curated for the Artspace Ideas Platform in Sydney earlier this year. In the exhibition artists from across Australia and Southeast Asia considered the persistence of the studio in the context of the digital evolution of the art market and the internationalising of art world relations.

Jasmin Stephens is a freelance curator who lives in Sydney. Following senior positions with Artbank, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) and Fremantle Arts Centre, she has contributed to programming conducted by institutions and led by artists in Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan. A regular panel assessor and mentor, she has served on the Board of ANAT, the Australian Network for Art and Technology, and on the City of Waverley Public Art Advisory Committee. She currently teaches Visual and Museum Cultures of the Asia Pacific in the Master of Curating and Cultural Leadership at UNSW Art and Design and is a collaborating curator on Sugar vs the Reef?, a multi-year project led by artist Lucas Ihlein.

*Please note this event is on Tuesday 3 October | 5 - 6pm
