The exhibition features the work of contemporary practitioners aligned with heritage artefacts from the campus collections of the National College of Art and Design, Ireland (NCAD), and foregrounds the Leslie Eastwood Textiles Design Documentation Collection housed at the National Irish Visual Arts Library (NIVAL). Infrastructures of Now is curated by Anne Kelly for the NCAD Gallery.
Infrastructures of Now highlights both practitioner and institutional strategies in negotiating sustainable visual arts practices in contemporary life. The exhibition biographical information inadvertently discloses the exhibitors varying modes of professional practice: how they operate in this moment, the spaces they inhabit, on which operational / institutional opportunities they depend and questions of autonomy. Within the context of the Institution, Infrastructures of Now declares to be a point of reference for the forthcoming campus-wide series of events on the subject of 'the future of making', in Autumn 2018.
