From breaking news and artists insights to current thinking and events around the world, VAI looks at the background to the Irish art world’s direction in terms of practice and the back stories that may not reach a public audience.
The VAN Podcast is a podcast series from Visual Artists Ireland.
Published every two months, The VAN Podcast features online conversations, recorded remotely, with various contributors to each issue of The Visual Artists’ News Sheet. This gives opportunities to discuss some of the ideas arising from published texts, while also offering insights into wider practice.
Episode 6 features an interview with Aideen Barry, focusing on her current large-scale commission for Kaunas 2022, European Capital of Culture, and her forthcoming solo exhibition at Limerick City Gallery of Art.
Aideen Barry is an Irish visual artist who has worked and exhibited extensively across Ireland and internationally. She was elected as a member of Aosdána in 2019, and the Royal Hibernian Academy in 2020. Aideen is represented by Galeria Isabel Hurley in Spain, and is affiliated with the Catherine Clark Gallery in San Francisco, and mother’s tankstation in Ireland.
An edited version of this interview will be published in the November/December 2021 issue of VAN.
