Paper 83: Artists, Art Worlds and Studios: A Research Note from Wales

William Housley

This research note draws from ethnographic research on artistic practice in post-devolution Wales. More specifically it draws from observations, interviews and field notes gathered during encounters with artists ‘in-studio’. The research note explores the complex engagement between social researcher, biography and charismatic artist as a dialogic enterprise. This is then discussed in relation to the notions of art-worlds, the creative self and charisma as an accomplished and embodied social fact.
