BASIC TALKS @ The Hugh Lane

1pm, Friday 9th December

Artist Fiona Hallinan will present some of her recent and upcoming projects including the Department of Ultimology and Fink's at Grazer Kunstverein.

Hallinan's work is frequently collaborative and project-based. Alongside the curator Kate Strain, she initiated the Department of Ultimology, a research-based project embedded in Trinity College Dublin, which explores the study of extinct or endangered subjects, theories, and tools of learning in Academic contexts. Her work employs hospitality as a method of exploring subjects or 'inducing the uncanny', often inviting participants and audiences into new relationships with existing situations. She maintains a practice as a food maker. Her works have been presented in the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Mother's Tankstation, Kerlin Gallery, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and Brown University, Providence.

Basic Talks is a series of informal talks with leading contemporary practitioners, taking place at The Hugh Lane on the second Friday of every month. Curated by Basic Space in partnership with The Hugh Lane, BASIC TALKS is an open platform for talks, panels, lectures and performances. Speakers will include artists, curators, writers and critics who will generate discourse on producing, framing and exhibiting art. BASIC TALKS is a collaboration between Basic Space and The Hugh Lane, exploring alternatives in the dissemination of contemporary art and its discourses. Information on speakers and location in gallery to follow shortly.

Basic talks are free and no booking necessary, unless otherwise stated.
