Final #TerraNostra (“our Earth”) exhibition talk @wexfordcoco 6pm 26/April – Prof Declan Long

The final of our series of talks in conjunction with the Terra Nostra Exhibition takes place as follows:

Date: Thursday, 26th April

Time: 6.00pm

Venue: Wexford County Council Offices, Carricklawn, Wexford

Guest Speaker: Professor Declan Long

You are Neither Here Nor There: Art and Twenty-first Century Irish Landscapes.

In this talk Declan Long will discuss a range of ways in which contemporary Irish artists are exploring transformations in the Irish landscape. Over the last two decades artists from the North of Ireland have often responded to the shifting experience and appearance of physical landscapes in the aftermath of the Troubles; in the Republic, artists have diversely addressed how Irish landscapes, of various kinds, have altered during dramatic periods of boom and bust. In the background to these developments, North and South, are the effects of wider global changes in how we experience space and time — and this talk will attempt to consider some ways that Irish artists’ relationship with location has been subject to such influences.

Dr Declan Long is Programme Director of the MA Art in the Contemporary World at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin. He is a regular contributor to Frieze magazine, Artforum International and RTE’s Arena programme. He has recently published the book Ghost-Haunted Land: Contemporary Art & Post-Troubles Northern Ireland (Manchester University Press, 2017) and in 2013 was a member of the judging panel for the Turner Prize.

There will also be a tour of the exhibition at 4.00pm on Thursday 26th April. To book a place on this tour, facilitated by David Begley, please let me know by email.
