The Artist & The State 

International Symposium 

Date: Saturday 26 November 2016 

Time: 10am – 5.30pm 

Venue: The Chapel, IMMA 

Tickets €6 (incl tea & coffee)

Organised by IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) , Dublin City Gallery – Hugh Lane and Create and is part of the official Ireland 2016 Programme.

In response to the centenary of the 1916 Rising and the evolution of society over the past 100 years, IMMA, The Hugh Lane and Create’s 2016 programmes reflected on the role artists and creativity play in society and the identity of the nation state. National commemorations operate within a framework of national identity and defined statehood – frameworks that are increasingly contested and problematic within global discourses on the shifting relationship between civil society and the state.

This international symposium at IMMA takes a timely look at the potential of contemporary arts practice to critically address the challenges now facing our ever-changing global society and systems of governance.

Diverging propositions on the changing role of the artist and the state will be presented by: Annie Fletcher, Chief Curator, Van Abbemuseum / Mick Wilson, artist / Head of Fine Art, Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg / Emily Jacir artist / Jaki Irvine, artist / Duncan Campbell, artist / Sarah Browne, artist / Jesse Jones, artist / Dr. Tina Kinsella, Lecturer, Critical and Contextual Studies (Fine Art) IADT / Lisa Godson, Historian of Design and Material Culture, NCAD / Vivian Ziherl, Curator, Frontier Imaginaries / Lara Khaldi and Yazan Khalili, artist duo / Sarah Glennie, Director, IMMA / Barbara Dawson, Director, Dublin City Gallery – Hugh Lane / Ailbhe Murphy, Director, Create.

A full symposium programme is available here.

Convened by Annie Fletcher and Sarah Glennie, co-curators of the exhibition El Lissitzky, The Artist and the State (IMMA, 2015), join curators, artists and researchers for a day of lively debate and discussion on some of most pertinent issues we are experiencing today.
