IS THERE a point to writing about contemporary art? Could it be more critical? More provocative? Perhaps it needs to be less full of jargon and more accessible?
What about the difficulties/methods of getting work published? Are there new audiences who can be reached by new media?
These are just some of the questions that will be discussed in Fugitive Dialogue #2, a roundtable discussion on art writing and publications, which is part of the TULCA Festival of Visual Arts. The talk will take place this Saturday from 3pm to 6pm in The View, Áras na Mac Leinn, NUI Galway.
The participants in the talk will be Gavin Murphy, Joanne Laws, Seán Lynch, Chris Fite-Wassilak, and Niall Moore. It will be chaired by James Merrigan and Michaële Cutaya of the art publication research project Fugitive Papers.
The project is experimental and involves opening a temporary critical space within which to organise opinion and reflection on art and writing as a public activity.
Fugitive Dialogue #2 is free and open to all. No booking is required. For more information about the discussion register at [email protected]
