About the Showcase Evenings
Currently we, FAF, are running a series of Showcase Evenings at The Lab, Foley street with the support of Dublin City Council and Visual Artists Ireland. To date we have had in excess of 30 selected participating artists.
For the Showcase events, each artist is represented by a 3 minute video segment of a showreel DVD that is then projected in the space. The FAF Showcase Evenings were established as a forum for discussion, as well as Showcasing the artists’ works to their peers and to other interested parties. At the Showcases, the artists are in attendance, along with anyone else who would like to attend (curators, other artists and the generally curious) and an informal discussion is had during the projection and after. A DVD of the event is produced and archived. The intention of these events is to encourage discussion and debate with artists around their arts practice within an informal setting.
In addition to the SHowcase events, FAF will also be publishing a series of articles in Visual Artists’ News, by a series of commissioned writers. The first commissioned write(s) are Danny McCarthy and Julie Forrester.
