AICA Ireland Members – Antony Gormley Lecture in IMMA

Winter Lecture 2015 | Antony Gormley

Tuesday 8 Dec, 7 – 8pm, the Chapel

To mark and celebrate Antony Gormleys major contribution to the practice and discourse of contemporary sculpture since the 1970s, the artist will present a lecture that considers his current practice in the light of his seminal work at IMMA shown shortly after the museum opened in 1991.

This talk will be followed by a drinks reception and is in association with AICA Ireland.

AICA Ireland members have 20 seats reserved for paid up members.  Please contact Sophie in IMMA to reserve your seat. It would be good to let them know as soon as possible as this event is over subscribed.

AICA Ireland Members Meeting rescheduled

aicaFollowing a request from members, the summer AICA Ireland members meeting has been rescheduled to later in the year.

At our last meeting we looked at slight changes to the agenda. As well as providing information on AICA Ireland business, we found the informal conversation around members’ current areas of interest and their current writing, research, or sectoral reports to be both interesting and also provided much room for discussion.  We would like to continue this at future meetings by adding time for people to talk about their work and also current areas of concern in art criticism and writing.

We are currently working on having the next meeting as part of a larger event taking place in Dublin. We are also preparing for the AICA Ireland AGM and are currently open to agenda items that members would like to see.

AICA Ireland Website & Members News

aicaThe final work is now complete on the AICA Ireland website.

After extensive redesign, the site now offers information on AICA Ireland and AICA International activities as well as details concerning Irish artists in Exhibitions and Events, Conferences, Talks, Calls for Proposals, and more general news from the wider art world. The site also acts as a first stage for the formal creation of an AICA Ireland archive with members being provided with an area to maintain an up to date bibliography and professional resume. The weekly news goes out on Sunday morning to all paid-up members of AICA Ireland copied to AICA International head office in Paris.

We are very grateful to the organisations who have allowed us to use their information in the creation of this site and hope that it will become a useful resource for critics and writers.
