Compendium of talks and conversations, edited by Sarah Martin and Sune Nordgren. "'Artists at Work' was the title of the second BALTIC International Seminar held in Gateshead in October 2000. Over three days, a panel of artists, curators and directors of residency programmes assembled to discuss the numerous ways in which institutions work with artists and facilitate their work through residencies and commissions. The participating speakers... shared their experiences of running artists' residencies and the commissioning process before a diverse audience of arts practitioners: Daniel Birnbaum, Lynne Cooke, Kathryn Kanjo, Friedrich Meschede, Richard Wentworth." -- from publishers statement.
