Ireland’s National Day for Visual Artists

15 September 2017

Irish Museum of Modern Art, Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Military Rd, Kilmainham, Dublin 8, Ireland

The programme for this year’s national conference is open for registrations with a wide range of artists, curators, critics and speakers invited.

The focus of this year’s programme is The Freedom to Make. We’re thrilled to welcome keynote speakers Marie Korpe and Ole Reitov – co-founders of Freemuse, the world’s leading organisation defending artistic freedom. They will discuss how personal, political, religious and social attitudes impact on ideas; test the limitations of freedom of artistic expression, and address how violations can be monitored.

We also have series of panel discussions and artist talks. We’re maximising attendees’ options for our popular Clinics for focused one-on-one advice on your practice. Speed Curating will return, which will offer an opportunity to meet and show your work to a selection of over 30 curators. The day provides the opportunity for artists to get together so they can meet curators, ask for advice from experts and discuss professional visual art practice.
