MEET is the accumulation and culmination of PeripheriesMEET, an online correspondence, which, in its first year, has existed exclusively online – until now. The seven artists presented at Gorey School of Art’s Periphery Space have been asked to take into account the context of the art school that frames it – a space of process and play in the tradition of Black Mountain Art School. This group exhibition eschews individualism for collectivity and risk – some artists are presenting work that is still being worked out or worked through during the installation of the exhibition. The artists at the moment of writing this press release are painting the walls and floors, while proposing ideas that might work together rather than apart. So this exhibition statement acts as an inadequate and premature document for the experiments and processes to come.

Artists: Orla Bates, Serena Caulfield, Catriona McLoughlin, Laura Ní Fhlaibhín, Olivia O’Dwyer, Laurence O’Toole, Ciara Roche

PeripheriesMEET is an online correspondence programme for artists with an opportunity to exhibit at Periphery Space. Over the course of the academic year, eight Wexford-based artists take part in four online feedback sessions and one in-person session at Periphery Space. Each feedback session is led by artists Emma Roche and James Merrigan. Guest mentors (Anne Ryan and Kevin Atherton for 20/21) were appointed to refresh perspectives and to accommodate the particular needs of different types of art practices. This free programme offers artists critical feedback in a safe environment, and encourages independent thought and support for individual artists who feel a little lost inside and outside the studio context.

Supported by Wexford Arts Office
