An artwork, like a book is not made up of individual words on a page (or images on a screen), each of which with a meaning, but is instead ‘caught up in a system of references to other books, other texts, other sentences’.

Pallas Projects/Studios presents the fourth in the series of Periodical Review – a unique, yearly survey of Irish contemporary art practices, that looks at commercial gallery shows, museum exhibitions, artist-led and independent projects and curatorial practices. Periodical Review is not a group exhibition per se, it is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). An exhibition as resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects: nodes within the network.

Each year PP/S invite two peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – to review and subsequently nominate a number of art practices, selected via an editorial meeting. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice acts to revisit, be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge within the field of contemporary Irish art; to facilitate and encourage collaboration, crossover and debate within the field of Irish contemporary art; and to act as an accessible survey of contemporary art, expanding parameters to art practices around the country.

Previous co-curators have been Matt Packer (Glucksman/Treignac/CCA), Michele Horrigan (Askeaton Contemporary Arts), Eamonn Maxwell (Director, Lismore Castle Arts), Padraic E. Moore (Independent curator), Ruth Carroll (RHA), Carl Giffney (Good Hatchery).

All the works featured in Periodical Review are available to purchase during the course of the exhibition, with commissions on sales going towards developing exhibitions & exchanges at PP/S. In a collaboration with Ormston House the exhibition will be reconfigured and presented in Limerick in 2015.
