Pull Bite Rally is the first exhibition to mark the Black Church Print Studio’s dynamic initiative Process. As part of the Studio’s artistic programme, Process invites leading art practitioners to work with the resources and expertise of the Studio in the production of original artworks. For the Pull Bite Rally exhibition artists Brian Fay, Damien Flood, Jesse Jones, Isabel Nolan and Sarah Pierce present their artworks and continued collaboration at NCAD Gallery. Through explorative processes, the artist’s intent is facilitated by the skills and experience of a dedicated printmaking team of master printmakers and print coordinators. This collaboration between artist and the Studio aims to give practitioners a comprehensive understanding of the processes and concepts of printmaking leading to new directions in their practice.

Integral and in addition to the exhibition, responses from practitioners, leading figures in the visual arts and the wider public are invited to participate in rigorous inquiry and discussion that Pull Bite Rally invokes. NCAD Gallery’s collegial context affords the opportunity to form close exhibition partner relationships with staff and students from the NCAD College departments and further afield to form a parallel event series. Over the four week exhibition period a programme of events, screenings and talks are scheduled in consideration of the central theme of process. Engaging key topics fundamental to the artists’ project experience, with reference to: the potentiality of collaboration and creative professional links for artists; printed matter and publishing; authorship and reproduction; medium specificity; professional practice pathways, skills and exchange; pedagogical foundations and shifts in contemporary art practice.

To mention only a few of the event highlights, kindly funded by The Research Institute at NCAD, Declan Long is in conversation with artist and 2014 Turner Prize nominee, Ciara Phillips, on Monday 24th November, 6pm. In a special one-off episode of TV Museum: The Mini-Series, Maeve Connolly investigates temporal, social and political aspects of serial publication and distribution. Connolly’s titled ‘Serial Publications and Practices’ lecture reconsiders some of the strategies employed by General Idea and also explores the work of various contemporary artists and institutions engaged in the production of newspapers, journals and serialised moving images, posing questions about the changing form and function of seriality in art, media and culture – Wednesday 3rd December, 5pm. ‘Repeat. Don’t stop’ is the NCAD MA Art in the Contemporary World organised public seminar that delves into ways to critically engage with current forms of artistic repetition and reproduction, considering how ideas and processes explored in the Pull Bite Rally exhibition relate to the broader contexts of twenty-first century art, Friday 28th November, 2pm.

Emma Haugh: The Re-appropriation of Sensuality

Performance at 7:00 pm

Event:
Saturday 29th November 2:00 pm
Emma Haugh in conversation with RGKSKSRG.

It starts with an invitation, a gentle, playful gesture asking to explore and connect, to inquire, to build body sculptures and wrestle with some thoughts and forces. It’s about pleasure and desire, pushing the boundaries of what we perceive as comfortable. Yet, it is not uncomfortable. It’s visual, it’s beyond constraints and moral hiccups.
This is the Dublin chapter of an on-going work ‘The Re-appropriation of sensuality’ developed by Emma Haugh in 2013 as part of her residency at the Joinery. It comprises of photographs, texts and collaboratively selected scripts, architectural body sculptures and inquisitive arrangements by Holly O’Brien and Aileen Murphy and a score produced by Faye Green.

Collaborators:
Marysia Wieckiewicz-Carroll, Holly O’Brien, Aileen Murphy, Faye Green and RGKSKSRG (Rachael Gilbourne & Kate Strain)

FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE

FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE: Information They Don’t Want You To Know
Thursday 20th Nov, 7pm, The Joinery.

A celebration of the trailblazing publication: FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE, 8th Edition. This co-written brochure examines methods for survival and collective living, as well as claiming and maintaining territory in the area of Stoneybatter, Dublin 7 in the year 2014. Join us as we find alternative sources of fresh water; implement asset protection strategies and initiate team-building exercises in order to produce extraordinary levels of successful living. As you read through this manual for everyday ingenuity, you will see that the results we obtained through our experiments were literally off the test scales. We explain how to use tactics of disorientation, interference, non-hierarchical organisation, infiltration, surveillance, listening, clue-placement and misdirection to unlock the potentials of our surroundings. This totally new approach to living is available to all: you just have to grab a copy of this inspirational pamphlet at 7PM on Thursday the 20th of November at the Joinery Gallery on Arbour Hill. The time has come to ignore the naysayers and become a superachiever!

Repeat. Don’t stop.

MA Art in the Contemporary World, Public Research Seminar
Fri 28th November, 2-4pm, Harry Clark Lecture Theatre, NCAD

The critic John Kelsey argues that many of today’s most significant artists take “repetition as their starting point, and don’t stop.” In this way, the truly ‘contemporary’ artist, Kelsey says, “produces production itself” and”no longer pretends to invent a new language, but instead confronts us with the potential we all share to disrupt both the directionality and the tempo of readymade codes.”

In this MA Art in the Contemporary World public seminar, MA participants and invited guests will consider ways to critically engage with current forms of artistic repetition and reproduction, considering how ideas and processes explored in the Pull Bite Rally exhibition relate to the broader contexts of twenty-first century art.

The discussion will begin from 3 key readings: John Kelsey, ‘Decapitalism’; David Joselit, ‘After Art’ (excerpt); Pamela M Lee, ‘Forgetting the Art World’ (excerpt.) It will be assumed that all participants have read these.

ALL WELCOME
NB: Places are limited and on first-come first served basis. Email the seminar leaders to confirm attendance and to get copies of the readings:
