studio 468- Citizen Artist: Hostility & Hospitality
HOSTILITY & HOSPITALITY – CITIZEN ARTIST & THE INVISIBLE MUSEUM – Common Ground’s third CRITICAL CONVERSATION 2019. Artist Laragh Pittman and Common Ground invited Brian Crowley, Tian Yu Lloyd, Dr Nita Mishra, Niera Nasr, Joe Odiboh and Aislinn O’Donnell to reflect and explore on issues pertinent to being a citizen of, and in, Ireland. This includes how we can collectively recognise and embrace the complexity and diversity of people who migrate to and live in Ireland and their Irishness as an equal and rich contribution to the Irish State. This discussion emerged during Laragh’s research into her project The Invisible Museum in studio 468. Recorded by Curious Broadcast in Kilmainham Gaol.
