Partners: NCAD and the LAB

Time: 6-8 pm

From Context to Exhibitionis a contemporary look at how artists seek to translate collaborative processes and practice into the context of the white space. The work presented at the LAB forms part of The Learning Development Programme, an experiential learning programme for student artists in fine art courses who want to engage with communities of place and/or interest and learn more about collaborative arts practice. Each year the student artists work with different communities around Dublin to co create artwork.

This year Create is delighted that the exhibition will be launched by Karen Guthrie. Karen Guthrie is an artist and film-maker, who works on independently generated and commissioned projects, solo and in collaboration with Nina Pope as part of the company, Somewhere. She also gives lectures and professional development workshops within educational contexts. She has lectured in Fine Art extensively over the last 15 years. She lives and works at Lawson Park, the rural Lake District HQ of innovative arts organisation Grizedale Arts.

This year the students worked with very diverse groups including elective communities of creative writers; lawyers; LGBT groups; a Dublin walking group, people in recovery programmes and the National Council for the Blind.

A linked event, The European Learning Network Symposium, will take place on 29 May with international speakers including Joshua Sofaer, Dr Susanne Burns, and Aaron Wright of Live Art Development Agency, and with a virtual keynote from Grant Kester. The aim of the one-day symposium is to explore cross-European learning networks and the development needs of artists working in context across Europe. ELN Symposium partners: Create; m-cult (Finland); Live Arts Development Agency(UK); and Tate Liverpool.
