This Thursday, Iaşi welcomes you to a presentation by Liliana Basarab. Invited to speak about her use of “workshop” as a working methodology in constructing art projects, the artist is offering a brief introduction below, while waiting for your participation on the 11th of July.

“The presentation will focus on workshops as developing methods of artistic projects. It will bring into discussion the negotiation with hosting institutions, with participants/ collaborators and the initiator of the project – the artist, as well as the expectations connected to the finalization of the artistic process. It has become part of my practice, by now, to constantly work in different geographical areas, shaped by a variety of factors that I am trying to observe and to identify. The presentation at Iaşi will focus on the role of workshops in relation to the outcome of the project.

Which are the building mechanisms of an art project? What are the stages of negotiation leading towards the final outcome? These are the questions that I am interested in and on which my practice is based on.” (Liliana Basarab)
