A collaboration between the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and artist and curator Michelle Grabner, this exhibition explores one of the most important spaces for an artist—the studio. Through site-specific installations, Makeshift examines the role of the studio in contemporary art practices. Artists featured include Trenton Doyle Hancock (TX), Jessica Jackson Hutchins (OR), Brad Kahlhamer (NY), Odili Donald Odita (PA), Barbara Rossi (IL), Greg Smith (NY), and Alison Elizabeth Taylor (NY).

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding was also provided by the Kohler Trust for the Arts and Education, Kohler Foundation, Inc., and the Frederic Cornell Kohler Charitable Trust. The Arts Center thanks its many members for their support of exhibitions and programs through the year.
