Summer School 2009: Open Studios

Plug In ICA presents Open Studios for Summer School 2009 Saturday, August 29, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. During the month of August, seventeen artists from across Canada have  participated in a hybrid residency/art research/art school program for professional practicing artists. The Open Studios event will be a chance to explore some outcomes of this program. The event is open to the public, free and everyone is welcome to attend.

Through the transformation of the gallery into studio space, Summer School has allowed participants to explore the relationships between research, production and exhibition. Artists have had opportunities to collaborate, build relationships and engage with each other, as well as  visiting international curators.

Summer School 2009 artists include: Tammi Campbell, Steven Leyden Cochrane, Lita Fontaine, Liz Garlicki, Becky Ip, Craig Love, Sarah Massecar, Caroline Monnet, Sandee Moore, Freya Björg Olafson, Pam Patterson, Bev Pike, Emily Rosamond, Tim Schouten, Andre Silva, spmb [Karen Shanski and Eduardo Aquino with Adam Robinson], and Cyrus Smith. Artists will be in attendance.
