Culturefox Tv is a TV platform that provides an online video guide to Irish cultural events, brought to you by the Arts Council and Art in Ireland Tv. Here they reflect on the work of Irish artists, authors and performers all over Ireland. I will share the new videos, as they happen, for the visual arts in Cork.
This week the focus is on Everything Must Go at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in Cork. Senior Curator Chris Clarke provides an introduction to the exhibition and selected works. If you want to know more there will be a curatorial tour with Senior Curator Chris Clarke & Declan Jordan on January 29th at 1pm. It is free and all are welcome to attend.
Everything Must Go at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in Cork explores the relationship between contemporary art, economics and value. Featuring works by Irish and international artists, the exhibition emphasises the ways in which monetary and historical value accrues through qualities that might appear peripheral to the artwork itself: context and display, provenance and ownership, reputation and rarity.
Value is never fixed; it is determined by the calculations of investors, the impulses of shoppers and the fluctuations of the marketplace. From the homes of private collectors to auction houses, luxury department stores to informal black markets, Everything Must Go looks at the spaces where objects are validated, appraised or, in some instances, overlooked.
Artists: Lida Abdul, Karmelo Bermejo, Walead Beshty, Victor Burgin, Colin Darke, Eric Fischl, Meschac Gaba, Antonia Hirsch, Kathi Hofer, Suzanne Mooney, Ni Haifeng, Raqs Media Collective, Amie Siegel, and Christopher Williams.
Curated by Chris Clarke and Declan Jordan in association with the School of Economics, University College Cork.
