Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture

In April, Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture showcased six leading Irish practitioners in Tate Liverpool as part of the fifth Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme Staging Post, supported by Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain programme.

This showcase and associated events sought to explore the potential of collaborative art and architectural initiatives to address questions of spatial justice and promote creative and collaborative responses to the built environment.

Create Ireland, with the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF), presents an iteration of this project for Irish audiences in an exhibition of video, visual & textual pieces by the six practitioners; artist Michelle Browne, curators Rosie Lynch and Éilis Lavelle from Callan Workhouse Union, artist-architect Blaithin Quinn, and architects Emmett Scanlon and Laurence Lord from Out.Post.Office at University College Dublin (UCD).

This iteration of Engaging Places is part of Practice and Power, a four-day major transnational event exploring questions of negotiation, exchange and representation in contemporary collaborative arts practice. Practice and Power is a significant part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), an ambitious Europe-wide cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts.
