After each issue of the Visual Artists News Sheet is distributed to members we make a selection of the published articles available on our website. From the latest issue you can read Treasa O’Brien’s column about I.M.E.L.D.A – an activist performance group focussed on consciousness raising about the Irish State’s retrograde attitudes to abortion; while leading UK theorist Mark Fisher muses on boredom, compulsion and anxiety as the pervasive contemporary malaise of contemporary life. In our residency report Kevin Gaffney describes his residency at the Taipei artist Village in Taiwan. Looking at art in the public realm, Sven Anderson outlines a project based on embedding himself within Dublin City Council as an urban acoustic planner / sound designer. And finally on painting, Victoria Wright shares some ideas examined on a recent Visual Artists Ireland peer critique session.
