SLOW VISIBILITY and Launch of Fugitive Papers #5
Saturday 23 November, 2pm – 6pm • A Fugitive Papers Event at Tulca 2013
WITH: Michelle Browne, Sarah Browne, Maria Kerin, Alice Lyons, Christine Mackey, Deirdre O’Mahony, Ailbhe Murphy, Judith Stewart Ciaran Smyth and Seoidín O’Sullivan.
Since the turn of the century, Ireland has seen a surge of art practices alternatively termed community-based, littoral, contextual, social, dialogic, collaborative, research and/or time-based. Often overlapping, these practices share a common emphasis on process. However, this growing number of practices are inadequately represented in the forms of visibility available to artists: gallery exhibitions, collections and critical reception, with their routine leaning towards the individual producer of objects. In turn, these double up as criteria of selection in the reputational economy of the arts, which accentuates the exclusion.
On Saturday the 23rd of November, in parallel to the publication of Fugitive Paper # 5, for which seven artists were invited to reflect on the condition and theory of their practices, Fugitive Papers will hold a discussion in Nuns Island Theatre as part of Tulca Festival of Visual Art. This event proposes to open up the discussion by inviting curators, commissioners and publics to join the participating artists (Biographies of contributors available here).
The discussion will be followed by the launch of Fugitive Papers # 5 at 5pm.
This event is supported by the Community Knowledge Initiative, NUIG.
Admission to the event is free.
