Saturday 11 November, 2.00 to 5.00pm
Showcasing new ROSC50 Artist Research Commissions by Amanda Coogan, Emma Haugh, Christodoulos Makris, Nathan O’Donnell and Suzanne Walsh.
An important part of the IMMA/ NIVAL ROSC 50 collaboration is to generate new research and new perspectives from both artists and audiences today, and to record these for future generations. Audiences are invited to attend a seminar comprising of artists’ performance, lecture presentations, screening and a panel discussion. This includes research projects in response to the Rosc exhibitions: ‘Prologue’ by artist Amanda Coogan, ‘Poverty of Vision’ by Emma Haugh and a collaborative project titled ‘Inflamatory Speech’ by Christodoulos Makris, Nathan O’Donnell and Suzanne Walsh. Each artist has taken as their starting point the material relating to the Rosc exhibitions in the NIVAL archive, and are responding to themes relating to the ambition, memory and legacy of Rosc and also the critical and public engagement with the exhibitions.
Other contributions will be presented by Brenda Moore-McCann, art historian, writer and appointed researcher of the IMMA/NIVAL: ROSC 50 – 1967 / 2017 project, and Valerie Connor, curator and educator, D.I.T.
