Symposium: 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale


by on Jun.25, 2016, under Events


This one day symposium will elaborate on the themes addressed by the exhibition NSK Folk Art Rising 1916-2016 and their broader social and cultural impact in relation to the period of commemoration in Ireland and the precarious state of the European Union. Artists and invited guest speakers will discuss the role of the contemporary nation state, the aesthetics of memorialisation in relation to place (both real and imagined) and the relationship between artists/artist’s collectives to the current climate of globalization.
