Showcasing new ROSC50 Research Commissions by Amanda Coogan, Emma Haugh, Christodoulos Makris, Nathan O’Donnell and Suzanne Walsh.
An important part of the IMMA/ NIVAL ROSC 50 collaboration is to uncover new research and new perspectives from both artists and audiences today, and to record these for future generations. Audiences are invited to attend a seminar comprising of artists’ performance, lecture presentations, screening and a panel discussion. This features research projects in response to Rosc by artists Amanda Coogan, Emma Haugh and a collaborative project titled ‘Inflamatory Speech’ by Christodoulos Makris, Nathan O’Donnell and Suzanne Walsh. Each artist has taking as their starting point the material relating to Rosc in the NIVAL archive, and are responding to themes relating to the ambition, memory and legacy of Rosc and also the critical and public engagement with the exhibitions.
Other contributions will be presented by Brenda Moore-McCann, Art historian, writer and appointed researcher of the IMMA/NIVAL: ROSC 50 – 1967 / 2017 project, and Valerie Connor, Curator and Educator, D.I.T.
Complementary refreshments will be served. Places are limited.
