About A Fair Land
Echoing the role artists played in creating in articulating a new vision for Ireland pre-1916, IMMA and Grizedale Arts have collaborated to create an extraordinary new project in 2016 that examines the ‘usefulness’ of art. Re-thinking the Royal Hospital’s cobblestoned quadrant as a village, artist and creative practitioners have been invited to take over the iconic IMMA courtyard, creating a visual and working village installation – A Fair Land – which offer its visitors opportunities to eat, make, think, or trade. Presenting an active and tangible representation of the place of creativity in society A Fair Land will create a space for families, friends and strangers to gather, get involved, and experience alternative perspectives on living.
This talk took place on 19 August 2016 at IMMA
