  • Print

CHANGE OF VENUE: Due to the level of demand the venue for the Curating Architecture symposium has been changed to the Lecture Theatre at Belvedere College on Great Denmark Street, a short walk from Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane.
Time: 10.30am - 16.30pm (please note change of time from that published in the Programme of Events)

Curating Architecture is a symposium organised by the Irish Architecture Foundation, the School of Architecture UCD and Art in the Contemporary World NCAD, as part of the Dublin launch of the Irish participation at the Venice Architecture Biennale exhibition, of de Blacam and Meagher.
The symposium will examine how exhibitions can communicate not just literal and concrete properties (archive, material and artefact), but also the invisible, and even the intangible qualities of architecture (experience, emotion and fiction). 
Using of de Blacam and Meagher as a starting point, a national and international panel of curators, artists and architects, are invited to re-examine the challenges of defining architectural representation and exhibition, and to propose new directions and possibilities for curating within the practice of architecture and art itself.
Among the speakers will be Moritz Küng, Director of the New Center for Contemporary Art ‘El Canodrom / La Capella’ in Barcelona, Tina Di Carlo, a writer and curator living in London and Berlin and formerly curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Mick Wilson, artist, writer and educator, and Samantha Martin-McAuliffe, Lecturer, UCD.
