Arte Útil Lecture and Discussion with artist Tania Bruguera and Miguel Amado
Create and Cork Printmakers are delighted to announce an additional opportunity for artists attending the Networking Day to book into this rare opportunity to hear artist Tania Bruguera discuss the notion and practice of Arte Útil, in an event hosted by Miguel Amado, Director of Cork Printmakers.
The concept of Arte Útil has been proposed by Tania Bruguera and a group of museum professionals, informally gathered as the Asociación de Arte Útil. Arte Útil, a Spanish phrase, translates into English as ‘useful art’, but ‘Útil’ means more than ‘useful’, encompassing the notion of a tool or device.
Friday’s event will engage attendees in an exploration of Arte Útil’s genealogy, principles and criteria, providing examples of key Arte Útil projects in Ireland and internationally.
