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
