Create in association with OUT OF SITE presents 

RISK: A public seminar on the role of risk in a live art practice

Venue: The Odessa Club, Dame Court, Dublin 2, Time: 4-6pm
Friday 24th August 2007 
Admission free

Participating artists - LIGNA (Germany), Carole Lung (USA), Fergus Byrne (Ireland), Aileen Lambert (Ireland), Sandra Johnston (Northern Ireland) - will explore the relationship between risk taking and innovation in their practice, identifying the ways in which risk is essential to the vibrancy of live art. How do artists calculate risk and how might curators support live artists to play with risk and the fear of failure?

When audiences are invited to journey with an artist to test the boundaries of their role as viewer/spectator what precisely is at stake? RISK will question the relationship of audience and artist and the management of uncertainty in live art. RISK is chaired by Áine Philips.

The seminar is the second in the series of Create Think Tanks -  an initiative of Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts. Create Think Tank encourages and facilitates discussion on innovation and development in collaborative arts practice.
