Artist In Conversation: Karl Burke and Dr. Francis Halsall
Thursday 31 January 2019, 6.30pm
Free in.

Artist Karl Burke will be in conversation with Dr. Francis Halsall; art historian and co-director of the MA Art in the Contemporary World at NCAD Dublin. In association with Space Gathers Itself, an exhibition of work by Karl Burke, running until 09 February.
Karl Burke is an Irish artist and musician based in Dublin. He has exhibited widely in Europe and North America including The Royal Hibernian Academy, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Hugh Lane Gallery, Project Arts Centre, The Mac, Maria Stenfors Gallery, The Serpentine and The Mattress factory. A site specific practice of primary concern in Burke’s work is the symbiotic relationship between the art object, the space it inhabits and the experiential concerns related to viewership. The work is often minimal or reductive in appearance and takes the form of sculptural installations often utilising the mediums of steel and wood. Video, sound and the photographic image are utilised in other instances.
Francis Halsall is co-director of Master Programs, Art in the Contemporary World, at National College of Art and Design, Dublin and Research Fellow at the Department of Art History and Image Studies, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa. His research involves three main areas: (1) Modern and Contemporary art; (2) Philosophical aesthetics (3) Systems Thinking. He has published and lectured widely in all areas.
