About the Artist Studios
The Artist Studios at the Boston Center for the Arts are dedicated to providing affordable workspace and a supportive environment to artists in all disciplines, and at all stages of artistic development. Artists working in studios at the BCA include painters, printmakers, sculptors, filmmakers, craftspeople, writers, performing artists and other art-related organizations.
The building includes fifty work-only studios for artists and arts organizations (studios are not live-in spaces). Studio sizes range from 110 sq ft to 1500 sq ft.
Artists and arts organizations are selected and placed in studios at the BCA through an application and jury-review process as studios become available.
If you would like more information on the Artist Studios or are interested in applying for a studio, please refer to the application instructions.
Caitlin Berrigan works at the intersection of performance, edible sculpture, participatory actions and the life sciences to initiate dialogue about biopolitics and culture. Less concerned with visualizing the unseen, she is interested in employing spatial aesthetics to make imperceptible forces an embodied experience. She stages conflict between pleasure and discomfort through intimate, choreographed encounters between the public and sculptural media—provoking multivalent readings and visceral responses. By uncovering layers of ambiguous emotions, she aims to open a space of potential to confront uncertainty within the context of social issues.
Berrigan was an Agnes Gund fellow at Skowhegan and artist in residence at PROGRAM in Berlin. She holds a Master’s in visual art from MIT (2009) and a B.A. in art history and production from Hampshire College (2004). Her work has shown at the Whitney Museum, Storefront for Art & Architecture, Hammer Museum, Gallery 400 Chicago, LACMA, Lugar a Dudas Bogotà, and 0047 Gallery Oslo among other sites and venues.
Caitlin has a new solo exhibition at the Proof Gallery, an independent gallery space in South Boston.

I am primarily concerned with the expression of color, light and movement in my compositions. The exploration of transparency and reflection are central to my thinking.
The Game with Colors and Geometrical Shapes.
In my spontaneous painting ( I named it:“ Free painting” ) with ink on wet rice paper I draw my inspiration from imagery of the large arias of landscapes seeing like from pilot view (looking down while moving). These painting are like a poem, composed not from lines, but woods and fields, grass and flowers, earth and water. One can watch them as one would watch a fire, or look into a pool of water, and meditate. One can feel them as one feels music. Looking into them gives one a sense of peace and happiness. I think the ability to meditate, to take beauty into oneself is the most important and revitalizing ability of every person. It’s each person‘s spiritual force and beauty. It is what heals us. The Rays of Light, Rainbow are my colors, my source of poetry, my inspiration. The Infinity of Light. The Light is Life. The Childhood is Light. The Light is the Childhood. Experimenting, playing with colors on any surface, imagining them coming to life shaped in some 3D object, become alive with the magic touch and then let them go to real life with people to be admired, loved, remembered… This is what I am trying to do in my work.
