Visual Artists Ireland Café – Smithfield Commission
As part of the Sculpture Dublin public engagement programme, Visual Artists Ireland is organising a series of cafés that bring together artists, arts organisations and audiences, and connect them with local projects.
This Café introduces Smithfield Square Lower and the immediate vicinity of the new sculpture commission. The awarded artist will be presented at the event.
You will hear artists give insight into their working practices, learn about work they may be currently developing in their studios, and hear how research plays an integral role in developing new sculpture.
You will hear experienced arts professionals discuss the roles they play in supporting artists and in how sculpture is experienced by audiences.
We will also be hearing from local projects and initiatives that are taking place in the locality of the commission sites and engaging in discussion about what impact the sculpture commissions will have in the area.
This event is held in partnership with Sculpture Dublin
23 February 2021, 3pm to 4.30pm.
General Admission – Free
