Swing Space is designed to address short-term space needs for a wide range of projects and to encourage creative, experimental, and collaborative approaches to artistic practice in unconventional spaces.

Artist in Residence from July 3-August 13,2012
Six-week summer program for international artists, curators, critics, and art historians in Mexico City.
SOMA Summer offers a series of short seminars and workshops led by a selection of renowned Mexican and international artists and curators. A number of guided visits to museums and artists studios are scheduled. Participants also have the possibility of meeting weekly with a variety of artists and curators for individual critiques and conversations. This six-week intensive program culminates with an open studio/lecture event, where participants will show the development of their work.
This summer’s topic considers the transformation of labor in artistic practice from the Second World War to the present. Seminars and workshops will help the group reflect on the shift from a manufacturing to service economy in developed countries as well as new definitions of labor that have extended beyond all national boundaries.
SOMA Summer participants will revisit the legacy of conceptual art as a mode of production, the role of craft in contemporary art practices, and the pertinency of learning technical skills in art education. The group will also explore the possibilities of alternative economies, and look closely at the ways in which artists participate in decentralized, global networks of production.
