Green On Red Gallery is pleased to announce the participation of Bea McMahon and Dennis McNulty in Periodical Review #3 taking place in Pallas Projects.
An artwork, like a book is not made up of individual words on a page (or images on a screen), each of which with a meaning, but is instead 'caught up in a system of reference to other books, other texts, other sentences' Michel Foucault, The Archaeology of Knowledge
Pallas Project/Studios presents the third Periodical Review at their studios and project space in Dublin's historic area of the Coombe. This unique, yearly survey of Irish contemporary art practices looks at commercial gallery shows, museum exhibitions, artist-led and independent projects and curatorial practices. Periodical Review is not a group exhibition per se; it is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). An exhibition as resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects: nodes within the network.
Each year PP/S invite two peers - artists, writers, educators, curators - to review and subsequently nominate a number of art practices, which will be selected via an editorial meeting. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice acts to revisit, be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge within the field of contemporary Irish art. Additionally, the exhibition has a fundraising element, with all commission on sales going towards the PP/S curated programme.
The exhibition is intended to act as a critical account of current contemporary practice; to facilitate and encourage collaboration, crossover and debate within the field of Irish contemporary art (through the invited co-curators, the aims of its selection, and discussion around it); to act as an accessible survey of contemporary art, expanding parameters to art practices around the country.
