The Expanded Field | A Conversation on Art and Research, The LAB, Dublin

Wednesday 25 April, 6 to 7.30pm

Hosted by ARC (Art and Research Collaboration programme, IADT) and The LAB, this event explores some of the experimental practices, ideas and strateges that are central to The Expanded Field, an exhibition and residency project investigating the multifaceted nature of the Munster region, curated by Askeaton Contemporary Arts and Lismore Castle Arts.

A keynote presentation will be made by Aurora Tang, Los Angeles-based curator, researcher and Programme Manager of the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) and will mark CLUI’s first engagement with Ireland. The evening also features contributions by Michele Horrigan (curator, Askeaton Contemporary Arts), Paul McAree (curator, Lismore Castle Arts) and writer and critic Maeve Connolly.

The Center for Land Use Interpretation, founded in 1994, is a research and education organisation interested in understanding the nature and extent of human interaction with the surface of the earth, and in finding new meanings in the intentional and incidental forms that we individually and collectively create. CLUI believe that the manmade landscape is a cultural inscription, that can be read to better understand who we are, and has produced dozens of exhibits on land use themes and regions, for public institutions all over the United States, as well as overseas.
