Active Archive – Slow Institution is a major research project and exhibitions that delves into Project’s rich 50+ year history, uncovering the history (or rather histories) of one of Ireland’s oldest public art institutions.
One of the driving forces behind developing Active Archive – Slow Institution is to look at what future proposals for transformation are inscribed within Project’s manifold history. The studying and interrogation of documents and archival artefacts not only supports the recovering of the history of one of Ireland’s oldest art centres but also approaches that history from the perspective of pressing contemporary issues. Through this new lens we can re-evaluate the changing conditions of artistic labour and production, the agency of artistic and curatorial work in relation to economic, social, and political institutions of power, as well as the status of exhibitions and the role of public institutions.
The gallery space will generate and host discussions and conversations, both with professionals and the wider public, to read Project’s histories via the wider context of cultural institutional, political, social and intellectual histories, including the building development of Temple Bar, gender representation, the history of Irish feminism, and LGBTQ rights.
The first chapter of this exhibition will focus on the 1990s with special attention to the OFF Site projects, Project @ The Mint and the development of the current building, prepared in collaboration with curator and writer Valerie Connor.
