Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture

16th – 21st April 2018
Tate Exchange, Tate Liverpool
Heart of Glass, St Helens

Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture will present the work of six leading Irish practitioners in the area of collaborative art and architecture as part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) Heart of Glass Staging Post in association with Tate Liverpool. The showcase and associated events seek 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 with multiple publics.

The practitioners are; artist Michelle Browne, curators Rosie Lynch and Eilis Lavelle from Callan Workhouse Union, artist / architect Blaithin Quinn, and architects Emmett Scanlon and Laurence Lord from Out.Post.Office at U.C.D. As part of presenting project examples each of these practitioners will engage in alternative discursive and workshop platforms in Tate Exchange as well as engaging in neighbourhoods and community centres aligned with and in response to Heart of Glass’s programme in both St. Helen’s and Liverpool.

As a twin city of Dublin with a significant and culturally important Irish diaspora, Create seeks to reinforce and expand the links already created with cultural organisations in Liverpool and environs through the 2013 Cultural Corridor initiative, which was an initiative with Dublin City Council’s The LAB Gallery and Bluecoat in Liverpool.

Create, Heart of Glass and Tate Liverpool are partners in the nine-partner Creative Europe funded Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme and the April event will see artists and arts organisations attending from across the UK and Europe.

Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture is supported by Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain programme. Culture Ireland are supporting a special focus on Irish artistic activity in Britain in 2018 and will present a vibrant, contemporary and high quality programme including a range of events across artistic disciplines in high-profile venues, institutions and festivals in Britain, building on Ireland's special history and relationship with its nearest neighbour.
