Create in partnership with NCAD and ResCen, Middlesex University, UK collaborated to provide opportunities for artist led international dialogue and exchange in February 2007.
Create and ResCen hosted an informal seminar, ARTIST EXCHANGE: process, practice and the audience, which took place on Tuesday 27 February, 2007 at Studio, Soho Theatre, 21 Dean Street, London.
This was the first time that ResCen and Create met together. The focus of the day was on artists’ processes and the ways in which they constitute a field of knowledge. Participating artists interviewed each other, to share their strategies and concerns, illuminating commonalities and differences in their work. An additional focus was the role of the audience in the creative process and how these artists conceive of their audience during the creation of their work. The day was led by Chris Bannerman, Head of ResCen, and Sarah Tuck, Director of Create.
Artists from Ireland: George Higgs, Tom Creed, Lorraine Gallagher, Shane Cullen, Louise Walsh and Alan Phelan
