ProjekTraum: l’Atelier Glidden Wozniak is a project space in the studio of visual artist Felicia Glidden and musician Alain Wozniak. They met at the artist residency Salem2Salem in 2010. In 2014 they bought a store front in Manzell, Friedrichshafen and have converted it into a live-work space. They have collaborated on several projects as ProjekTraum, and the exhibition by Jim Denomie was the first exhibition to take place in their studio in October 2015.
Glidden and Wozniak are interested in inviting international artists to create exhibitions in their atelier in Manzell, Friedrichshafen and also sell artwork online. They plan on hosting 2 – 4 exhibitions in a year. Felicia has recently started building an online artist library “Art Seen 1966 – 2016.” It is a snapshot at how artists have responded to the transition from an analog to digital world. If you are an artist interested in curating your records here online please contact Felicia at ProjekTraum@protonmail.com
