On display from April 29th – June 1st 2010
Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 29th, 6-9pm.
Given the tumultuous nature of this raw-and-ready live/work space in The Distillery, "Studio 11 - A Retrospective" aims to bring together a vast collection of artists who are or were, at one time or another, inhabitants of the famed and fabled loft.
Expanding and sifting through a total of five floors, the studio over the past 20 years has become notorious for all-night parties which have induced neighbors to tears through drunken trumpet playing, unpractical games of Log, and monstrous recreations of a Van der Graaff Generator. The artists themselves, in a declaration of the social nature of the space, have had to experience a range of situations that flutter between the normal and the absurd, including themed dinner events, minor floods, ping pong championships, and roommates that participate in loud, monotypic bouts of copulation or physically decide to alter their appearance to look like that of a mountain zebra.
Recently Studio 11 was featured in Justin Timberlake's MTV reality show "The Phone," and in 2008 was graced with the presence of Pulitzer Prize winning poet, James Tate.
