This 4-week course will introduce and apply approaches to art writing in terms of style, concept and method for engaging the art object. The Hugh Lane Gallery is delighted to partner with the Irish Writers Centre on this course.
"This art writing course embraces the intersection of visual art and literary styles. Creative criticism, fictioning and conceptual writing are among a range of approaches to discuss art practices. Drawing from current exhibitions Bones in the Attic and Eva Gonzales is what Dublin needs at the Hugh Lane Gallery, participants will practice and develop artwork-specific forms of writing through the act of close looking and thinking with visual art." - Jennie Taylor
"Art writing makes space for thinking with visual art." - Jennie Taylor
