    XLOMFCNHNGNCINUDCWGENMMNCH Four Gallery Dublin 2008 Ronan McCrea Medium The End Return Gallery Goethe Institut Dublin Left Pop bringing it back home a special project for the second Moscow Biennale co curated with Nicola Lees and Diana Baldon Moscow Museum of Modern Art Moscow 2007 PROJECT Title The Exhibition and the political a study in the changing terms of contemporary art exhibition making Abstract In the past fifteen years there has been an increased volume and prominence of large scale group exhibitions which engage with politics public ness the public sphere democracy and socio political concerns Indicative of the ways in which the exhibition is increasingly proposed as a space for the political are documenta X s 1997 focus on the social economic and political issues of the present Documenta11 s 2001 2 positing of itself as a constellation of public spheres and numerous other similarly themed large scale international shows Although first deployed within political discourses in the early twentieth century the term the political is increasingly mobilized within contemporary art discourses to differentiate between the status quo of liberal democratic politicking and the pursuit of radical political reorganization and social renewal While an interlinking between art and politics is not without precedent it is argued that the intensification of exhibitions pertaining to this nexus of political terms marks a significant shift in exhibition making and contemporary art The aim of this thesis is to map this shift and explore its significance by examining the exhibition and the political through three distinct yet interconnected thematics i the exhibition and politics ii the exhibition and the public sphere and iii the exhibition and the political Each of these thematic conjunctions is examined through reflection on contemporary art curatorial philosophical sociological and political discourses as well as the analysis of examples of large scale international exhibitions At key points within the thesis the author s own practice is brought into play to counterbalance and hinge these discourses with the situated practice of exhibition making In this way a number of voices are combined in the act of thinking through the relationship between the exhibition and the political those of art history art criticism art theory political theory and philosophy This is an approach adopted as in keeping with the modalities of the expanded professional discourses in the field of curating Link Research Interests The exhibition stands as part of a vast field of cultural production within a series of institutions rules rituals conventions categories and titles which compose a hierarchy and which produce and consequently authorize certain discourses activities and productions I am interested in the current and historical precedents of exhibition making with a special interest in the pioneering work in the 1920s and 1930s I am interested in the 1960s assertion of the everyday within art and the legacy it holds today I am interested in the encounter of artwork and in site and context specificity I am interested in socially engaged art practice theories of spectatorship and political engagement

    org and Scoop it Research Interests My practice is concerned with interrogating public spaces virtual and physical through incongruous interventions and actions which focus attention on the ways in which we interact with our environment The work uses humour and often absurdity as a tactic to expose the intrinsic systems of control and censorship in the new media Current research interests are focused on the use of locative media and mapping practices in the creation of participatory artworks My research will seek to fuse together locative media techniques and subjective mapping practises to create pyschogeographically inspired participatory artworks which will interrogate and disrupt the users experience of their urban environment develop new methodologies of audience interaction and participation while exposing and critiquing the panoptical characteristics inherent in the growth of locative media My research will also seek to position locative media in a greater art historical context drawing a line from the Lettrists through the Situationalists happenings and other interventionist and performative practises from the 1960s and 70s to the net art movement I will also link the work to current art practises of re enactment in performative art I have a long standing interest in the open source movement

    between contemporary art and philosophy Prior to embarking on this research specific experimental events were organized as a subsidiary dimension to the exhibition of my work The work mainly took the form of installation that encompassed elements of sculpture drawing video and sound The events were initially conceived to support the art objects within the exhibition context to provide additional context with respect to the philosophical themes that informed the exhibition Since embarking on my current research a fundamental shift has occurred within the practice these once subsidiary events now take precedence The research comprises four projects Mystical Anarchism 2009 Cult of Engagement 2009 Metaphysical Longings 2010 and The Unveiling 2010 Although these projects differ in terms of media format context and thematics they each take the form of an event and require some form of a gathering in their composition These gatherings have occurred within a formal contemporary gallery space an empty museum a forest at midnight and a community garden respectively This emphasis on collective experience is fundamental to the work and in ways similar to participatory art practices the audience plays a crucial role in activating the work However rather than using terms such as participatory practices happenings etc which have specific criteria the term event is used within the research as a portfolio term to include a wide range of different situations This term event has an additional function within the research as it is philosophically interpreted within the traditions of continental philosophy The work of Alain Badiou and Jacques Rancière is central to evental philosophy Both philosophers have written extensively on aesthetics in relation to contemporary art The recent circulation of their ideas in prolific discursive forms within contemporary art evidences a decisive shift and a re engagement with aesthetics The research is contextualised within
