Periodical Review #9

Sinéad Keogh and Diana Chambers next to their work at the opening, December 2019.

Congratulations to KCAT Studio artist Diana Chambers and to Sinéad Keogh who will have a collaborative art piece featured in this years ‘Periodical Review #9’ at Pallas Projects selected by Workhouse Union

Diana and Sinéad began working together several years ago as part of the KCAT Engagement Project and also currently have work on show in the F.E McWilliam Gallery in Banbridge as part of the ‘Together Now: The Engagement Project Exhibition’

Periodical Review is an annual survey of recent Irish art, selected in collaboration with invited curators/peers from around Ireland. Each year, Pallas Projects invite two peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – to review and subsequently nominate a number of art practices, selected via an editorial process. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice acts to revisit; to be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge; to facilitate and encourage collaboration, crossover and debate.

Not a group exhibition per se, Periodical Review is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). This is the exhibition as resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with and re-present what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects: nodes within the network.

In looking at self-organised exhibitions, off-site projects, commercial gallery and museum shows, performances and publications, Periodical Review looks to share a spectrum of practices, creating dialogue and critical reflection to help develop and support Irish contemporary art as a whole; and to act as an accessible survey of contemporary art for a wider audience, expanding the access to and experience of art practices from around the country.
