Tulca Workshops: Public Art Clinic, Vagabond Reviews

Tulca Workshops: Public Art Clinic, Vagabond Reviews
Research in Public: Critical Coordinates

At the Art-House-Café, No. 18 Sliabh Bán, Ballybane, Galway.

Monday 14th November 2011, 1pm – 4pm.

In the context of a public art commission Vagabond Reviews has established a temporary cultural space in a house at the Sliabh Bán estate, Ballybane, Galway. Signalled in the neighbourhood as the Art-House-Café the house has been constituted as the central research device for opening up a dialogue with and between residents. At the same time, Vagabond Reviews has been facilitating a module as part of an M.Soc.Sc. programme at the School of Sociology at University College Dublin entitled Others and Exiles: Culture, Diversity & Creative Research Practice which takes the form of an interdisciplinary epistemological investigation, setting out to critically explore through examples of practice, how research methods and socially engaged arts practice have developed particular ways of sense making and (re)presentation.

As part of the Tulca programme of situated dialogues Vagabond Reviews will conduct a Public Art Clinic at No.18 Sliabh Bán. Reflections on our residency along with some critical coordinates drawn from the Others and Exiles Module will be harnessed to explore and generate broader discussion on the experiential, epistemological and representational challenges that arise when artistic and research-based ways of knowing are brought together through public art research processes.
