VAI Artists Cafés

Sculpture Dublin: Ballyfermot Commission

In partnership with Visual Artists Ireland

This is the first of six Visual Artists’ Cafés that will bring together artists, arts organisations and audiences, and connect them with local projects.
This Café introduces Ballyfermot and the immediate vicinity of the first Sculpture Dublin commission. The awarded artist will be presented at the event.
You will hear artists give insight into their working practices, learn about work they may be currently developing in their studios, and hear how research plays an integral role in developing new sculpture.
You will hear experienced arts professionals discuss the roles they play in supporting artists and in how sculpture is experienced by audiences.
We will also be hearing from local projects and initiatives that are taking place in the locality of the commission sites and engage in discussion about what impact the sculpture commissions will have in the area.

The speakers confirmed for the event are:

  • Barbara Dawson (Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane & Sculpture Dublin Steering Group)
  • Orla Daly (Ballyfermot College of Further Education)
  • Alan Tully (FamiliBase)
  • Breda Marron (Awarded artist)
