BASIC TALKS ~ Lay of the Land
The Hugh Lane Gallery
Basic Space is delighted to present Lay of the Land for our June BASIC TALK.
Lay of the Land is a visual arts organisation curating and creating site-responsive art projects. LOTL produce powerful, imaginative and considered projects that encourage artists and their practice to engage with the landscape. Projects include immersive short and long-term residencies and outdoor exhibitions in an ever-growing number of rural locations throughout Ireland. They support artists whose practices focus on the landscape, and where themes of environment, community, heritage and collaboration are intrinsic to and reflected in their work.
Lay of the Land was founded and continues to be creatively produced by Kari Cahill and Hazel Mc Cague.
BASIC TALKS is a series of talks with leading contemporary practitioners, taking place at The Hugh Lane on the second Friday of every month. Curated by Basic Space in partnership with The Hugh Lane, BASIC TALKS is a platform for lectures, workshops, presentations, and performances. Speakers include artists, curators, writers, and critics who will generate discourse on producing, framing and exhibiting art. BASIC TALKS is a collaboration between Basic Space and The Hugh Lane, exploring alternatives in the dissemination of contemporary art and its discourses.
Admission is free but spaces are limited to 50 so please arrive promptly to avoid disappointment.
