In Conversation with ‘Conversations: Photography from the Bank of America Collection’
Broadcast Gallery, April 19 – 21, 2012
18th April 2012: In Conversation with ‘Conversations: Photography from the Bank of America Collection’ is an exhibition about an exhibition - namely the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s presentation of a touring show of photography selected from the bank’s collection. It will be opened by Mary Cremin Project Curator at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, on Thursday April 19th at 6pm.
The curatorial approach of this exhibition has been devised and produced by 3rd Year students of Photography and Fine Art - Barry Keogh, Bobi Murray, Conor O’Grady, Efa Corwell, Emmett Connell, Kathy Gilroy-Barry, Kasia Kaminska, Maciej Pestka, Neil Dorgan, Patricia Klich, Robert McCormack and Sarah Carney - who have chosen the Gallery Context module as part of their studies at DIT.
“Entering into a dialogue with the larger exhibition, we have curated In Conversation with ‘Conversations…’ to incorporate photographs made available through the Flickr website under Creative Commons licenses. Each image in the exhibition at Broadcast Gallery is free for use provided it is for non-commercial purposes. Our response asks questions about the exhibition of photography and the curatorial process itself. Additionally, this is an exploration and response to current political, artistic and social codes of practice that are prominent in photography as a medium. The show engages discursively with these topics and widens the scope of the inquiry the original exhibition alludes to and the use of the formal relationships drawn between the images selected.”
A catalogue featuring an introduction and four original essays accompanies the exhibition and is free to take away.
The Exhibition will be on view at Broadcast Gallery, Dublin Institute of Technology, Portland Row, Dublin 1 at the following dates and times and all are welcome to visit:
Thursday 19 April, 11 – 8pm
Friday 20 April, 11 – 4pm
Saturday 21 April, 11 – 4pm
