Limen Locale is a solo commission where Thomas-Irvine are pushing the idea of ‘charged materials’ onto an architectural scale to create a “superimposed situation”.
The Project of Art: Aldo Rossi
15 April - 15 May
Opening 15 April, 6 - 9 PM
The Project of Art is a joint reflection by Palmer and Basu mixing research, design and artworking as a way of ranging over the intertwined relations between art, architecture and place.
This research is backgrounded by an examination of ways that art can avoid instrumentalisation while taking on progressive objectives; what is a project of art that is not given to it but is implicit to it? Their enquiry begins with research on Aldo Rossi & Xavier Fabre’s art centre, Vassiviere, France, which they use to index the changes in art mediation and art institutions over the last 25 years since the building’s completion. They propose the idea of a Project of Art as a way of synthesising the positive social functions around art with the creative richness that drives art practices.
We are sad to say that after more than eight years working with us Sean Edwards will be leaving g39. In 2008 Sean founded WARP our professional development programme. Through WARP, Sean has had a huge influence on the visual arts community in South Wales and beyond. Support, community, peer networks, critical discussions, workshops, mentoring, nurture, and encouragement… these and so many other things have been invaluable assets that Sean has brought to the WARP community. We’re really grateful for all the things Sean has done in his time here and we look forward to seeing where his career takes him next.
