IFI Spotlight – Out of Site: Artists’ Moving Image and The Cinema Space
Irish Film Institute – IFI Spotlight – April 27th 2018, 11.50am – 1pm
Out of Site: Artists’ Moving Image and The Cinema Space
Chaired by aemi’s Alice Butler & Daniel Fitzpatrick, a panel, comprising artist Jesse Jones, Christine Molloy of the Desperate Optimists, Fionnuala Sweeney (Arts Council), filmmaker Joe Comerford and Anja Mahler (Digital Repository of Ireland) – will argue for the importance of cinema as an exhibition site for artists. The discussion will focus particularly on the Irish context, exploring where – and why – in recent years moving image work by visual artists has at times fallen under the radar of the wider Irish film community.
