Past Pro­gram­ming:

TSV offers a pub­lic cri­tique series for pro­fes­sional artists. Mod­eled after grad­u­ate pro­gram art cri­tiques, artists are invited to present their work in front of an audi­ence that includes TSV team mem­bers and a guest mod­er­a­tor, to stim­u­late crit­i­cal dia­logue, dis­course and growth in their work and stu­dio prac­tice. Artists sign up first come first serve by first email­ing their inter­est along with a link to their web­site and/​or sev­eral images of their cur­rent work . This series is free and open to the pub­lic. Space is lim­ited depend­ing on the venue so atten­dees are encour­aged to rsvp in advance. Please rsvp to: More details below.

Past Cura­to­r­ial Projects:

JUNE, 2012


June 21 —  July 22 , Works in Progress Gallery at Arti­sphere in Arling­ton, VA.

The Stu­dio Visit (TSV) is invit­ing local artist Reuben Bres­lar to occupy the Work In Progress Gallery for four weeks. Reuben is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary artist based in Vir­ginia. He is act­ing as ‘Artist as Cura­tor’ in col­lab­o­rat­ing with TSV Pro­gram Man­ager Vic­to­ria Greis­ing who is co-​​Curating this show with him. Reuben has asked Sam Scharff and Rachel Eng­land to par­tic­i­pate in this inter­ac­tive process that will begin with Reuben respond­ing ini­tially to the space and the cura­to­r­ial process. The three par­tic­i­pat­ing artists will take turns – alter­nat­ing weeks – by respond­ing to his work and all the while Reuben respond­ing back shortly there­after. It is, in essence, a dia­logue and a con­ver­sa­tion as man­i­fest as the artist as cura­tor and as a phys­i­cal space that ame­lio­rates with the peo­ple and objects that house and ‘con­verse’ with it over time. Sched­uled cri­tiques are planned and the entire process will be doc­u­mented and fea­tured on TSV’s site in a col­lab­o­ra­tive edi­to­r­ial of video, pho­tog­ra­phy and arti­cle to be also com­pleted by Reuben himself.

We are cov­er­ing the cura­to­r­ial jour­ney of the amaz­ing Kristina Bilonick from Pleas­ant Plains Work­shop by TSV writer Joren Lindholm’s point of view. Due to pro­gram­ming changes we are only cov­er­ing one emerg­ing cura­tor who also hap­pens to be one of TSV’s contributors!
