During the Exhibition, the Studio Will Be Close is published on the occasion of the eponymous group exhibition organised by WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (14 June – 17 August 2014) in collaboration with Motto Publications.

Contemporary Art
The trilingual exhibition publication is composed of nine chapters in one volume. The introductory chapter features an essay by curator Lorenzo Benedetti, whose point of departure is the fine line and particular interaction between production and presentation at the art centre. What lies in between the physical proximity of the working studios and exhibition spaces turns out to be more than just a symbolic separation. Eight former artists-in-residence at WIELS were invited to design their own book space that consists of each 16 pages, in relation to their contributions to the dialogue of the show.

Lorenzo Benedetti has been director of the art space Volume in Rome and founded the Sound Art Museum. He was curator at the museum Marta Herford (Germany). Since 2008 is appointed director of De Vleeshal in Middelburg. Caroline Dumalin is the new artistic director of AAIR, an international residency project and local support initiative based in Antwerp.
