Description

Lucas Spivey | Mobile Incubator

Mobile Incubator
July 20–October 22, 2017
Summer Public Art Residency on BCA Plaza
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 20

The Mobile Incubator is, physically, an overhauled 1957 Shasta camper, but Lucas Spivey has replaced the trailer’s original functionality with those of a home office and recording studio. The mobile office, complete with faux-yard and patio furniture, will act as a catalyst for collaboration between the realms of arts/culture and business. Spivey will host podcasts with entrepreneurs, researchers and thought leaders each week and present these to the public, while also holding drop-in sessions to perform pro bono business development for artists and cultural organizations.

The core focus of Spivey’s project is to encourage the exchange of information between creative- and business-minded individuals. “Arts and culture have a great deal to gain from the essentials of business,” Spivey contends. “And business has a lot to gain from the creativity and freedom so central to the arts.”

BCA’s Visual Artist Residency Program is one of the only programs of its kind in Boston that focuses on artistic practices that foreground process and community engagement. These process-oriented residencies are intended to provide an environment where artists can experiment with their craft, develop their focus or test new ideas, while simultaneously engaging in vital public dialogue. In residencies that range from 13 to 15 weeks at Boston Center for the Arts’ vibrant South End Campus, each artist receives full-time access to a studio space in the Artist Studios Building, support from an intern dedicated to their project and financial assistance.
