Fergal Gaynor: Art, Judgment and the Erosion of Public Space

Wednesday 22 August
Fergal Gaynor: Art, Judgment and the Erosion of Public Space | Wednesday 22 August  | National Sculpture Factory

FREQUENCIES Summer Lecture Series – Aesthetics, Taste Judgment

Wednesday 22 August, 1 – 2pm

Without a maintained, open, shared space of physical display – a ‘public space’ – art and politics become impossible. It follows, however, that as such public space comes under threat from market, governmental and administrative forces, a new relation of art to politics appears. This talk will draw on the work of Hannah Arendt to propose an alternative understanding of public space in terms of ‘openness to judgment’, using this concept to draw together experiences from the worlds of art practice, art and art institutional curation, critical practice and popular revolt.

Dr. Fergal Gaynor is a writer, independent scholar and editor (with Ed Krčma of art periodical Enclave Review). Born in 1969, he was a founding member of Art / not art with Dobz O’Brien, with whom he worked on the curatorial team of the Cork Caucus in 2005. His first collection of poetry was published by Miami University Press (Oxford, Ohio) in 2011.
