Friday 14 & Saturday 15 November
Following the success of last year’s Creative Time Summit screening in NCAD and the F2 Neighbourhood Centre, Rialto, this year Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Fire Station Artists’ Studios are pleased to partner with the MA in Socially Engaged Art in NCAD to screen the 2014 Creative Time Summit live from Stockholm.
Creative Time is a New York based public art agency committed to supporting socially and politically engaged art. Now in its sixth year, the annual Creative Time Summit is a key conference globally, exploring the diverse ways in which artists are tackling social and political issues, platforming voices from arts and activism and highlighting diverse strategies for social change. This year the summit is convening in Europe for the first time. Creative Time have partnered with Public Art Agency Sweden to co-develop a packed two day programme. Summit: Stockholm will focus on innovative practices that relate to five core themes: Nationalisms, Performing the City, Activating Public Space, Art in the Age of Surveillance, and Migrations. http://www.creativetime.org
Building on this year’s summit themes, a Dublin based programme has been developed to complement the live stream with additional presentations and discussions on Friday 14th & Saturday 15th and a Dublin based seminar and book launch on Thursday 14th November. Highlights include:
• Live-streamed keynote addresses from: Edi Rama (Prime Minister of Albania) and Saskia Sassen (Professor of Sociology at Columbia University).
• Live-streamed presentations from leading artists, activists, curators and critics from around the world including: Tania Bruguera, Jeremy Deller, Maria Lind, Amar Kanwar and Joanna Warsza.
