‘The Landis Museum’ opening at CCA Derry

CCA is pleased to invite you to the opening of The Landis Museum.

Bianca Baldi, Irina Gheorghe, Helena Hamilton, Dorothy Hunter (ACW student), Alex Impey, Kapwani Kiwanga, Nina Liebenberg, Phillip McCrilly, Sarah Pierce (ACW coordinator), Katrina Sheena Smyth, Alexandra Sukhareva. Devised by James N. Hutchinson and Chapter Thirteen.

‘The Landis Museum’ is a museum of encounter. It is based on the methodology of Mark Landis, a man who – in late 2010 – became the subject of a number of international newspaper articles that characterised him as an art-world fraud; a forger who had been fooling museums by donating fake paintings and drawings for nearly twenty-five years. But such a characterisation is only one aspect of what was at play in Landis’ activities, and it may obscure what makes his work useful and interesting. For Landis, the motivation appears to have been as much about the interaction with the institution as it was about his work’s inclusion in museum collections. ‘The Landis Museum’ is a site for exploring the legacies of – or traces left by – moments of encounter, or generating central points through which new moments of encounter can be enacted.

The museum is displayed in a sculptural structure, designed specifically to house the objects, texts and videos. It brings together seven international artists, gathered because they share something in their mode of operation, their starting points, or the manner in which they seek to be read.

Devised by James N. Hutchinson, ‘The Landis Museum’ was initially shown at Chapter Thirteen as part of Glasgow International, 2018. CCA is presenting a new iteration of the project, adding a local annex to the museum.

The local annex consists of a series of one-day residencies that respond to the travelling exhibition. The residencies are choreographed encounters between the existing works and four artists based in Northern Ireland. The artists in residence are invited to use the gallery as their studio and to stage a ‘public moment’ that may be, for instance, a lecture, performance, meal, or workshop. Please check our website for details of upcoming events.

Opening Events

6:30 pm – Talk: James N. Hutchinson will talk about the time he spent with Mark Landis in the weeks following his exposure in the press, and will offer the opportunity to see and handle a number of objects made by Landis that do not appear in the exhibition.

7:00 pm – Exhibition opening

8:00 pm – Performance: ‘Foreign Language for Beginners’ (2015 – ongoing) is a performance work by Irina Gheorghe that explores the dynamics and history of a potential first contact through speech, sound and movement. It is a conversation with the world outside the word, by way of word, inside a room. The performance starts with simple messages that were composed and gathered by the SETI Institute to be sent into outer space. As the performance progresses, the mode of address, the language and the situation become increasingly uncanny.

The opening is a free event and refreshments will be provided.

This exhibition and associated events are made possible through the generous support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and with the further support of Culture Ireland and Glasgow International.

Julia Dubsky | Salon of Good Time, TBG+S Opening

Studio 16 | Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

Opening on Wednesday 23 May, 6-8pm
Continuing to Wednesday 30 May

Opening hours:
11 – 6pm | Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Sunday and Monday by arrangement

Salon Of Good Time is an upcoming show which concludes friend of ACW Julia Dubsky’s year-long Graduate Residency at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, which has taken place in studio 16.

Over the course of the residency, her work has become bolder in scale and colour, while continuing to question nuances of painting. A personal desire for possibilities beyond impasses has spawned inversions throughout the work – light layers cover dark grounds; dabs are drawn from negative space; receding colours are foregrounded; hot colours cooled and vice versa. Poppyseed oil (which is clear in colour) was used in place of linseed oil for mixing paints, to grant more agency in temperature and tone.

On this occasion, there is an abundance of paintings filling the room. Some lean against the wall, perched on bubblewrap in anticipation of being moved, packed up or turned around. This mode of display consciously suggests a kind of engagement: that of a studio visit. Titles and figurative marks feature more prominently now in narrating the visual language; while varieties of time continue to be recorded in the paintings among layers and marks.

An accompanying text will be written by the TBG+S curator, Rayne Booth.

Julia will give an artist talk as part of the Basic Space talks in Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Friday, 18 May, 1pm. The talk will touch on: departing from pathos, jealousy and scarcity, preparations/rehearsals, the grid, narrative through style and titles, paint applications signifying readymades, graffiti, spokes, double negative (representation), smuggling, intrinsic value?, hard edge, Persian calligraphy paintings, penumbra, viridian, red and blue, perception studies … with possible reference to Donna Haraway, Isabelle Graw, Bini Adamczak, Marge Piercy, Djuna Barnes and Clarice Lispector.

Julia Dubsky (b. 1990, Dublin),was awarded the Recent Graduate Residency in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios for one year, beginning in May 2017, after graduating from the National College of Art and Design in 2016, from Fine Art and Visual Culture. Since then, Dubsky has been based in Dublin, London and Berlin. In October 2018, she will join the class of Jutta Koether in Hamburg University of Art.

IMMA & ACW Fellow Amelia Groom

Public Lecture, by Amelia Groom: Dense and Broken, on rocks, writing and pareidolia.
6pm, Friday November 10th Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre, NCAD, Thomas Street, Dublin.

This Autumn IMMA and NCAD will be joined by Dr Amelia Groom for the 2017 Art in the Contemporary World research and teaching residency. Amelia is an Australian writer based in Amsterdam, where she has taught theory and writing on MA programmes at the Sandberg Instituut since 2014. She completed her PhD in Art History & Theory at the University of Sydney, with a focus on ‘disorderly temporalities’ and the possibilities of anachronism for art historical methodologies. In 2013 she edited the Whitechapel Gallery / The MIT Press ‘Documents of Contemporary Art’ anthology on TIME. For the NCAD / IMMA residency, Amelia will be holding a series of seminars on minerality and embodiment. The seminars will draw from the work of a number of living artists, as well as various historical, mythological and geological phenomena – including Sailing Stones, Medusa, The Vocal Memnon and The Makapansgat Pebble – with the aim of working through questions about extraction, deep time, non-human ecologies, inorganic erotics, pearls, petrifications and other rocky relations.

Amelia will be leading the “Petrified” seminar at NCAD as part of the “Situations” seminar run by ACW:

In everyday language, stones will often stand for ‘inhuman’ emotionlessness – as when we speak of her blank stony stare, the stone cold killer, or somebody with a heart of stone. When something is as solid as a rock it does not break or shift; when it is set in stone, it is fixed and unchangeable. Again and again, rocks come in to language as the antithesis of change, outside of time, without process, stone dead. Beginning from the premise that rocks are not actually atemporal, ahistorical or apolitical, this seminar will be structured around various points of encounter and contamination across the biological and geological realms. Focusing on a range of artistic, literary, theoretical and mythological references, participants will explore questions pertaining to non-human ecologies, queer and feminist neo-materialisms, extraction, ‘deep time’, inorganic erotics, pearls, petrifications and other rocky relations.

More details to come.

Rising from the Hill: Local Systems in Global Contexts

Cow House Studios Autumn Residency, 2017

With the generous support of Wexford County Council & The National College of Art & Design, Cow House Studios presents Rising from the Hill: Local Systems in Global Contexts, a 6-week residency that will explore and develop methods of giving aesthetic forms to real-life, situations. In particular, participants will respond to the local environment of Cow House Studios, in the rural Irish countryside of Wexford. Participants will be encouraged to use ideas, strategies, and metaphors of “systems” to consider the complex relationships between this local context and larger global systems such as economics, telecommunications, meteorology and so on.

This residency was conceived in the spirit of meaningful exchange between practice and theory and as an outcome of on-going collaborative projects between Francis Halsall and Kelley O’Brien investigating social relations through the lens of systems. This means to uncouple systems from individual humans and think of them, instead, as complex interactions of people, architecture, things, communications, and environments. In other words, individuals are not separate from their environments, but rather, an integral part of them.

Through structured conversations, readings, and site explorations residents will articulate different methods for aesthetically “mapping” the historical and contemporary context of Irish relations with global and social systems of power. Residency participants will be invited to develop a proposed project to be presented as both a visual record of research and development through a collaborative exhibition at the gallery at National College of Art & Design, Dublin and a published catalogue documenting the processes of the participants, visiting artists, academics and organisers.

The 6-week studio residency will be accompanied by a series of discussions and dinners led by Francis and Kelley as well as many visiting artists, curators, and academics. 4-6 individuals engaged in a variety of aesthetic practices will be selected to participate via open call process. Successful applicants will come to Rathnure and reside at Cow House Studios from October 30th, through December 10th, 2017.

Practitioners whose practices have strong conceptual and theoretical grounding are encouraged to apply; visual artists, performance artists, filmmakers, writers, architects, designers, thinkers, etc.

During the course of the residency, participants will have time to work independently on their proposed projects, experiment with new processes for exploring, understanding and mapping systems, work collaboratively to produce an exhibition (at NCAD, Dublin Dec. 2017) and subsequently a published outcome to serve as a platform for critical discussion on the interconnectedness of social systems and environments.

IMMA/ACW fellow Martin Waldmeier


We are delighted to welcome our new IMMA/ACW fellow Martin Waldmeier.

MA Programs, Art in the Contemporary World at National College of Art and Design, Dublin, working in collaboration with the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin will be hosting Martin as a Visiting Teaching and Research Resident Fellow this October.


Following an open call Martin was invited to develop and present his research on the theme: “Medium/ Platform/ System” This will involve a graduate seminar studio visits and public lectures.

Martin Waldmeier is a curator and researcher working on the intersections between art, language and globalisation. Martin recently completed his Ph.D. in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths (University of London), titled “The Artist as Translator”. His recent travelling exhibition, “The Translator’s Voice”, explored language identity in the global present and was awarded the FRAC Lorraine/MARCO Vigo/SFKM Førde Award for Young Curators.



As part of his residency at IMMA, Martin will teach an elective module in the “Art in the Contemporary World” programme at the National Academy of Art and Design. Taking the idea of “Lingua Franca” – also known as bridge language, common language or vehicular language – as a starting point, his module will explore how contemporary art connects with global publics, and what role language plays in this process. Is it important for artists to write and speak about their work? Who are they addressing? Is art a form of language, and if so, how universal can it be? How could we speak and write differently?



Previously, Martin studied Modern and Contemporary Art History and Curatorial Studies at the University of Bern (Switzerland), and Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as Fulbright Scholar. Between 2009 and 2011 he worked as the Assistant Curator at PROGR Centre for Cultural Production, Bern, and as the Curator and Director of Stadtgalerie, Bern.

The residency program was initiated to develop connections between students on the Masters programs, Art in the Contemporary World and an international network of practitioners, writers and thinkers. Past residents have been the writer and broadcaster Morgan Quaintance and the academic and critic Noit Banai.

Art in the Contemporary World is a taught postgraduate programme that examines contemporary art practices and their critical, theoretical, historical and social contexts. Since being set up 10 years ago it has developed into one of Ireland’s leading forums for contemporary art discourse.

I like to eat with my hands

Featuring work by: Taro Furukata, Ann Maria Healy, Claire Huber & KVM
Saturday 27th August at 3pm
Curated by RGKSKSRG

BOOK YOUR SEAT ON THE BUS!
A bus will leave Dublin at 1pm and return to Dublin for 8pm.
To book a place on the bus (€5.50 return) please click here.

The exhibition I like to eat with my hands is the outcome of an artistic residency involving five contemporary, international artists. The participants were artists Taro Furukata and Ann Maria Healy, dancer/choreographer Claire Huber, and writer/artist duo KVM – Ju Hyun Lee and Ludovic Burel.

For a period of eight-weeks in autumn last year, they re-located their practices to the deeply rural environment of Cow House Studios, situated on a working farm in the foothills of the Blackstairs Mountains, County Wexford, Ireland.

Together, they immersed themselves in research between the studios, the land and the shared accommodation, to create new work, share skills, and reflect on their own and others’ individual practices. Within this activity, the question was asked: can situating oneself within these new ‘Pig Earth’ surroundings potentially radicalise an existing working process?

Our answer comes to you in the form of this exhibition. It comes in the lonesomeness of Taro Furukata’s poignant attempts to assimilate (physically metabolising new spaces in the sanctity of his actual body) and to reach back home (phoning his Grandma for hand-me-down recipes); in Claire Huber’s struggle out of the physical and metaphysical confines of the body (dancing with and in nature in a wild and comic reach for meaning); in Ann Maria Healy’s search for spiritual guidance or resonance amongst dated mythological traditions (removed and ritualised in their almost but not quite kitsch physical form), and in KVM’s more than skin-deep transference of cultural mores (echoes of nasty cultural realities, warts and all).

RGKSKSRG is the paired curatorial practice of Rachael Gilbourne and Kate Strain.
