Critical Forum Dublin is currently seeking new members for 2015/2016.
Critical Forum is a discussion group for practitioners, critics and curators who have an investment in the future of artist moving image. It is a space for criticality and debate in a mutually supportive environment and in dialogue with LUX. The recent PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image was instigated and curated by Critical Forum members and took place between Galway, Cork and Dublin this February in partnership with the Irish Film Institute and Temple Bar Gallery+Studios with the generous support of a Touring Award from the Arts Council of Ireland.
The forum will take place once a month at Studio Six in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and is supported by LUX and TBG+S. Each meeting will consist of two separate presentations by two members of the group and will involve discussion of moving image work by other artists with reference to texts where relevant. The focus of these sessions will always be on group discussion.
Critical Forum members must be willing to commit to the group for a period of one year. If you are an artist, critic or curator and would like to be a part of the Critical Forum please send an expression of interest including a short (100 words or less) description of your practice and links to websites where relevant to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm on Friday March 13th 2015.
LUX is an international arts agency, based in London, for the support and promotion of artists’ moving image practice and the ideas that surround it. LUX exists to provide access to, and develop audiences for, artists' moving image work; to provide professional development support for artists working with the moving image; and to contribute to and develop discourse around practice. Currently there are three Critical Forum groups, one that takes place in London, one that takes place in Glasgow and one in TBG+S in Dublin. Critical Forum Dublin was launched in 2013 by LUX Director Benjamin Cook at TBG+S.
