These get-togethers are one hour talks between artists, researcher, curators, policy makers and philosophers. Informal and informative, we have five events in the first series this spring

Event One

Sligo based artist Kian Benson Bailes is showing work in the Dock, fresh from his successes at Tucla, Galway’s festival of visual arts. His work makes references to imaginary landscapes and bodyscapes which allude to the bicolage of digital visual language. The plain of the screen and presence of pixilation shapes the language and subject of the work. Recent exhibitions include: The Present is not Enough-Part 1, CCA Derry-Londonderry (IE/UK)

Originally from Longford Eimear Walshe is an artist and writer, and a researcher at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. Walshe's work seeks to reconcile queer histories with personal or local narratives through fiction, biography, and academic writing. Recent presentations of work include Fools’ Bells Fall at Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn, NL; Jason Oakley Art Writing Forum, VAI Get Together, IMMA; Precarious Subjects: Gender and Sexualities Conference, Trinity College Dublin; No More Fun and Games, Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin. Recent and forthcoming publications include Response to a Request, Paper Visual Art, Circa, and Totally Dublin.
