6 October 6:30 to 8:00pm
The 3 curators of the collaborative art project Concerning the Other, running at the Olivier Cornet Gallery till 8th October, thought that it would be a good idea to have a panel discussion with some of the artists to further explore the various elements of the project, i.e how the artists dealt with each other’s work, how they found the process of having their work altered (and sometimes, destroyed), how the public engaged with the process week by week, how people responded to the final works, what effect (if any) the works had, and many more questions that have arisen since the beginning of the project.
It promises to be a very interesting evening as they will be talking about their experience during the project and answering any questions you might have. This free event will be chaired by Michael Coyne who is currently doing an MA in Visual and Critical Studies with the Dublin School of Creative Arts at DIT.
Michael has selected the Concerning the Other project for the focus of his Master’s thesis which will consist of a comparative analysis of exhibitions focusing on themes of migration, refugees, conflict, otherness and representation politics. Primary research fields examined include exhibitions, museum studies and the representation of certain marginalised groups.
Concerning the Other features work by:
James Hanley RHA, Brian Fay, Claire Halpin, Joanna Kidney, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Gail Ritchie, Miriam McConnon, Kate Murphy, Ben Readman and Susanne Wawra.
