Re-considering - The LAB Online Art Programme 2020

08 June 2020

Art imaginatively reflects our world, often re-considering it from a different angle to the norm. 'Re-considering' is the LAB’s Online Art Programme for 2020 that has been created as a response to the LAB Gallery’s closure due to Co-Vid 19 restrictions. Marking what would have been the LAB’s 15th Birthday, the programme aims through videos and podcasts to look back on the LAB’s archive of seminars, panel discussion, events and projects that reflect the collaborations that the gallery has participated in. Many of these seminars and discussions involve artists, curators, writers, and researchers whose practises re-consider political issues, histories, materials, and ways of looking. Selected by our ARC LAB Curatorial Scholar, Roisin Power Hackett, the series platforms themes such as art and interdisciplinarity, Dublin Port, the Irish postal system, the future of work, and disability. Bringing these videos and podcasts together, 'Re-considering' highlights past projects that have aspired to change the way we perceive the world around us.

'Re-considering' will be shared here on the Event page of the LAB Gallery's website, on the LAB Gallery's Instagram and Dublin City Arts Office Instagram page and on the LAB Gallery's Facebook page.

The Programme will be shared on the Tuesday of each week from Tuesday 9th of June 2020.
