Zeitgeist: Critics Discuss, A Roundtable Discussion on the NCAD Show 2019

Wed 12 June, 6.00-7.30pm

Harry Clarke Building, Ground Floor Lecture Theatre

If you want the opportunity to taste the grit of the zeitgeist and consider how the contemporary filters through the creative minds of artists and designers, the annual NCAD Show never fails to offer a multitude of forms and perspectives. But what do the exhibits tell us about emerging trends? What are the interests and obsessions of a new generation of artists and designers? And can these offerings show us an alternative trajectory through the clunk of the contemporary. 

Brendan Fox, a student of the MA Art in the Contemporary World programme, has invited critics to respond to the 2019 Show. In an open roundtable discussion, the respondents will share their thoughts on the exhibited works, consider their interconnectivity and their possible impact in a broader context.
