Conflict, Commemoration, Collecting & Remembering

12 – 15 June 2012

Belfast Exposed and Golden Thread Gallery present this series of exploratory talks examining the role of art making and art institutions in the representation of war, its effects and its legacy. The talks will accompany the exhibitions Open Shutters Iraq at Belfast Exposed (11 May – 15 June) and Loss, curated in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, at Golden Thread Gallery (31 May – 28 July). 

The talks will focus on work made by practitioners and participants in reaction to an experience of war. This series will also investigate how national institutions such as the Imperial War Museum collect work, as well as examining the strategies employed by Belfast City Council in the organization of official commemorative events as we enter a decade of anniversaries chronologically mapping Northern Ireland's history of conflict.

Each talk will centre on a different word relating to the role of art and institutions in representing war and these words will be defined from the perspectives of four different speakers: Alan Ingram, Hazel Francey, Sara Bevan and Triona White Hamilton.

All talks are free and tea and coffee will be provided. Places are limited so please RSVP to book your place. All are welcome.

 

June 12th 2012: Conflict / Alan Ingram

Venue: Belfast Exposed, 2pm – 3pm

Dr Alan Ingram teaches political geography at University College London. He currently holds a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for the project Art and War: Responses to Iraq, which explores how artists and art institutions in the UK reacted to the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation. The research is intended to inform public understanding and engagement with issues surrounding the war and occupation in the run up to the tenth anniversary of the invasion next year. In this talk Alan will discuss two approaches to making work on the Iraq war currently on display in Belfast, through looking at the Open Shutters Iraq project at Belfast Exposed and Queen and Country by Steve McQueen showing at Golden Thread Gallery.

June 15th 2012: Remembering / Triona White Hamilton

Venue: Golden Thread Gallery, 2pm – 3pm

Tríona White Hamilton is the Curator of Everyday Objects Transformed by the Conflict,  an exhibition organized by Healing Through Remembering, a cross community organisation based in Belfast. It is a multiple perspective exhibition on the conflict in and about Northern Ireland. The loaned exhibition items are everyday – but transformed by the conflict - or are sometimes extraordinary ones but transformed into everyday things by the conflict. Memories cling to these objects and their labels reveal stories of resistance, peace, anxiety, loss, violence, commemoration and humour. The exhibition labels are written by the collectors/ owners of the objects so that their diverse voices and perspectives are an integral part of the display itself.
