Politics: Modern and Irish
As society is constructed, it relies on certain heritages to assemble the identities and traditions its populace adheres to, appearing as the political status quo, or hegemony of cultural from. In these forms of collective perception, how might contemporary art, as an eclectic and liberal form, realistically position itself within these discussions? Might this be useful for reimagining Irish politics past, present and future? Speakers include Helen Carey, curator and director of Limerick City Gallery, Roddy Buchanan visual artist, Amanda Ralph, visual artist. The seminar is chaired by Sean Lynch, artist.
