space52 presents Forthcoming III, the third chapter of an exhibition series and research project first initiated in 2018. Charting the material traces of artists’ working processes, the exhibition brings together a collection of sculptures, drawings and fragmented artifacts, miniatures of their self-directed works in progress.
The exhibition explores the conversations that take place in artists’ studios and studio visits, forming an inquiry into the expansive terrain of contemporary artistic inquiry.
As the first show at space52’s new home on Larnakos Street, Forthcoming III invites a diverse group of contemporary artists, architects, and dancers as a starting point for nurturing future exchanges of knowledge and skills within this new site. Artists’ studios are more than spaces in which art is produced: they embody a certain way of thinking and being that emphasizes emerging, intuitive, embedded, and non-linear processes. As both a non-profit art space hosting a residency program and the home of Dionisis Christofilogiannis’ art studio, space52 is a reservoir of ideas and artistic practices in dynamic dialogue with each another that come to form a collective art studio.
