Studio 6 Open: A Penny Spinning (VI): Criticality and Recognising the Knock

16 March 2015

An open reading group exploring conceptual and art writing while fostering dialogue between writers, artists and researchers, led by Sue Rainford.

Monday 16th March | 6pm | Studio 6 at TBG+S

Taking place in Studio 6 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios as part of the Studio 6 Open programme, A Penny Spinning is an open reading group which aims to explore conceptual and art writing while fostering dialogue between writers, artists and researchers. Open to the public, each session will be tailored with readings and questions to consider in advance of meeting, pursuing such topics as writing as artefact, critical intervention and inscription – both in themselves and in relation to the visual arts.

This 6th session takes place on Monday, March 16th at 6pm. No booking necessary. Organised and led by Sue Rainsford

This seminar will assess how the previous topics might be implemented toward critical gestures and activities.

In addition, we will consider how different genres operate in the production of textual spaces, and how these varying means might be employed in instigating criticality around contemporary art.

Relevant practitioners include: Maria Fusco

Questions to consider:

  • Can art be written in, as well as around?
  • How can elements leading to the converging of genres, art forms and media be related to the animating force in a text? Or, how can textual action be employed toward critical thinking?
