Young, single and ready to navigate through complex issues regarding temporality and time

ACW student Sara Muthi responds to PLATFORM 2018, an exhibition and a series of associated events showcasing the work of emerging and early career artists who will use the Gallery as a playful, experimental and creative space. Using a wide range of visual media as well as sound, music, dance and food, PLATFORM provides an opportunity for the public to engage with artists, creatives and curators as they animate their ideas and practices.

“PLATFORM creates ample opportunities for emerging artists to exhibit, grow and consider their practice in light of their peers. Spaces for fresh creative freedom, in which things may be tried and tested in a critical context such as this are few and far between.”

Anticipation: Actualisation, performance event at the NCAD Gallery


Anticipation: Actualisation
Wednesday 21 March,
Performance 5 – 6 pm,
Panel Discussion 6 – 7 pm

Anticipation: Actualisation is a three part performance art based event happening at the NCAD Gallery, followed by a panel lead discussion curated by ACW student Sara Muthi and Dr. EL Putnam as part of in:Action, the Irish Live Art Review.

This tripartite event is organised by in:Action consisting of Dr. EL Putnam and Sara Muthi at the NCAD Gallery in collaboration with a wide range of artists, scholars and writers specialising in performance practice. This event aims to delve into the complex relationship between the performing body and specific materials, acting as a critique of the body’s dominance in performance art discourse.

Performers include: Paula Fitzsimons, Leann Herlihy , Ciara McKeon, Rachael Rankin
Panelists include: Dr. Hilary Murray , Dr. Sarah Pierce, Nigel Rolfe
Writers include: Jack Beglin, Tara Carroll, Jesse Hopkins, Dr. Francis Halsall

The event is designed as an experiment without a predetermined conclusion though there are three designated outcomes; a one hour live performance by practicing artists, a one hour discussion panel in the Harry Clark Lecture theatre following the live event and three written responses to be published on in:Action (www.inacion.ie) one month later. The inevitable uncertainties that are anticipated to occur between the gaps of the designated outcomes will make up the points of interest for the discussion and writing.

Notes from the Underground – Art and Alternative Music in Eastern Europe 1968-1989

11:30 am, Monday 12th March, Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre given by Prof. David Crowley (Head of Visual Culture, NCAD)

Reflecting on ideas and artworks in an exhibition which he curated in Łódź last year (and opens again in Berlin this week), in this talk, David will explore the ways in which ‘the underground’ – artists and musicians outside the official zones managed by the communist authorities – embraced abjection, and queered the symbols of state socialism.

All Welcome.
