Adnan Yildiz will talk about his program at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart (since January 2011), and other projects in relation to his approach to transforming the institutional space into the conceptual form of an artist studio. At the core of his program is a series of solo exhibitions entitled Artistic Dialogues, which focuses on how artists approach the idea or form of space, and what they bring from their studio environment and process into the exhibition. The series investigates the artistic strategies behind exhibition making, materiality, and conceptualization, as well as experimenting with the ways of transmitting the artistic experience to the audience.
