The Core Project Gallery Talk at RUA RED

The Core Project Gallery Talk at RUA RED

Saturday 19 August, 3pm

Join us on the day of the exhibition opening for an insightful talk between the artist Matthew Nevin and Dr. Katherine Nolan. This is a recreation of a conversation they have had about Nevin’s body of work in the past that will also be available to view during the course of the exhibition.

The Core Project is a multifaceted visual art project, presented through video, online and as a large scale installation featuring over 150 videos, by Matthew Nevin. In each video, a single respondent answers a question that they have not previously seen. By withholding the question, Nevin removes the expectancy that we as participants in an expanding online/new media culture have become accustomed to. It removes the power of the question from the participant’s planned vocal and physical response. It sets an emphasis on the context of the answers and the behavioural nuances of the participants.

ART IN THE A.M. with Adham Faramawy at The Naughton Gallery, Belfast

ART IN THE A.M. with Adham Faramawy at The Naughton Gallery, Belfast

11 August

The next in our series of informal morning talks features Adham Faramawy in conversation with the Naughton Gallery’s, Ben Crothers and Rachel Brown.

Adham Faramawy (b.1981, Dubai) is a London-based artist of Egyptian descent whose work spans media including moving image, sculptural installation and print. The human body is central to Faramawy’s practice, approached as a primary, sensual site in which gender and sexuality are fluid. Live performances to camera are computer-mediated to create compelling, visceral, and sexually-charged works, displayed across a landscape of high definition flatscreens and sculptural assemblages.

Tea and coffee is on us. Email art@qub.ac.uk or keep an eye on our Facebook page for more info.
