Thursday 3 August at 2.30pm.
Sophie Gough, summer artist in residence at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre will be leading a panel discussion as part of Skibbereen Arts Festival. This event aims to explore themes and ideas associated with notions of site-specificity, addressing contemporary artistic, curatorial and experiential practices across various art and design mediums.
Gough has invited Andrew Kirwan (Architect, Edinburgh), Niamh Brown (Co-Director of Ormston House, Limerick), Nicole Marie (Visual Artist and founder of the Fierce Femme Collective, Cork City) and Sam McNicholl (Musician and curator/owner of Connollys of Leap, West Cork). For more information on each of the panel member please see the facebook event :
The free event is open to all and you are welcome to join with the panel to engage in the conversation examining such aspects of contemporary art and design.
