Studio System (2016)
Artist Residency at Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles

The Studio System Experimental Residency project was a unique attempt to bridge the gap between artistic practice and the public. By opening up the processes and methodologies of a studio-based approach to the engagement of a wider audience, we have set the stage for you to see 'behind the scenes' as it were. Visitor, has direct interaction with the artists to discuss inspirations, sources, thoughts, feelings, content and context as well as chart the progression through the works over the period of 29 days that the project encompasses.

This continues the TAM's dedication to exploring new ways of understanding and engaging with the art of our time and those that produce it.

We thank these artists, from Torrance, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, for their openness and generosity in committing to this unusual presentation: Sydney Croskery, Elizabeth Dorbad, Nancy Evans, Josh Hagler, Seth Kaufman, Hung Viet Nguyen, Don Porcella, Dickson Schneider, Mariangeles Soto-Diaz, Vincent Tomczyk and Valerie Wilcox.
