Abstract

Periodical Review #2

Selected by Eamonn Maxwell, Pádraic E. Moore, Gavin Murphy & Mark Cullen

An artwork, like a book is not made up of individual words on a page (or images on a screen), each of which with a meaning, but is instead ‘caught up in a system of references to other books, other texts, other sentences’.*

Structured as an editorial review with a critical and discursive position, this unique, yearly survey of Irish contemporary art practices, looks at commercial gallery shows, museum exhibitions, artist-led and independent projects, publishing, and curatorial practices.

At the beginning of the year PP/S invite two peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – to review and subsequently nominate a number of art practices, selected via an editorial meeting. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice will act to revisit, be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge within the field of contemporary Irish art. A series of talks and responses will accompany the exhibition.

Periodical Review is not a group exhibition per se, it is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). An exhibition as resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects, nodes within the network.
