THE MARKET events
We are delighted to present this pair of events on 1st and 3rd October which will open up key themes in Mark Curran's current project, The MARKET. This project seeks to expose and challenge our perception and conception of the Market and encounter it as an omni-present and omnipotent force in our day to day lives.
Tuesday 1 October 2-3pm | Artist Talk
After delivering one of the keynote lectures at this weekend's Land, Labour, Capital conference in Limerick and a full capacity talk in Gallery of Photography, Dublin, this is an opportunity to attend an informal Q&A session with the artist who will discuss his current project, The Market.
Thursday 3 October 1pm - 1.45pm | THE MARKET: A Global Discussion
Alfred Hickey M'Sichili will open up the context of this exhibition by discussing the current state of the Market and its effects on global economy and global justice. There will be an opportunity for Q & A at the end of this discussion.
