In Public In Particular (IPIP)
The NCAD Gallery presents 'In Public In Particular', Creative Europe programme of the European Union
Tuesday, 28th November - Friday, 1st December 2017
In Public In Particular (IPIP), is a presentation partnership exhibition between the Fine Art Media and Sculpture Departments at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (NCAD) in the NCAD Gallery: how this partnership is integrated, mediated and gathers momentum across student groups and years', and is part of an exchange and participation with partners: Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Belgium; University of Zagreb Faculty of Graphic Arts (GRF), Croatia; and Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS), Finland.
In Public, In Particular (IPIP) aims to develop and promote participatory art methods and situation specific art among European audiences. The main tools to reach these aims are audience research, public workshops and international street happenings which are carried through by artists and art students in close cooperation with street actors and the public of four European streets.
Each partner has chosen a specific street in their city and will focus on the people, services, history and phenomena of those streets. Small enterprises, public offices, libraries and NGOs located by the selected streets are invited to cooperative workshops in order to plan, implement and estimate situation specific artworks with the artists and art students. This way they provide special knowledge about the streets and contribute to the content of the artworks whilst they also learn about artistic processes and practices and the beneficial possibilities of art.
During IPIP the participating artists and art students are provided with multiprofessional workshop periods. Special attention is given to applying inspiring digital marketing methods to promote situation specific art and participatory art for general public and international audiences. Audiences outside the project areas are invited and encouraged to participate in the project activities through social media.
The IPIP project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
The Creative Europe programme aims to support the European audiovisual, cultural and creative sector. The different funding schemes encourage the audiovisual, cultural and creative players to operate across Europe, to reach new audiences and to develop the skills needed in the digital age. By helping European cultural and audiovisual works to reach audiences in other countries, the programme will also contribute to safeguarding cultural and linguistic diversity.
The Culture sub-programme of the CE helps cultural and creative organisations to operate transnationally and promotes the cross-border circulation of works of culture and the mobility of cultural players. It provides financial support to projects with a European dimension aiming to share cultural content across borders.
The In Public In Particular exhibition is co-curated by Michelle Browne, NCAD Fine Art Tutor & Anne Kelly, NCAD Gallery
