Women’s Work: Undoing the Gender of Media
Led by Dr. Katherine Nolan, featuring Valerie Connor, Leah Hilliard, Dr. Kylie Jarret, Dr. Paula Quigley.
Collectively this series of talks will address the gendering of media, how gender is produced through technology, and the practices in which women as cultural producers challenge such normative ideas. The talks are set in the context of an exhibition showcasing the work of artists working in what might be considered masculinised media: these artists chosen on the strength of their work ‘happen’ to be women. Speakers will address issues of the gendered body, labour and domestic and cultural production in the contexts of contemporary art practices, film and social media.
Workshops @ RUA RED:
Led by: NCAD’s ADW Graduates Sinead McDonald and Aileen Drohan.

/Glitch Festival at RUA RED is Ireland’s leading Digital Arts Festival that brings together artists utilising media and technology.
/Glitch Festival 2016 will be hosted in two Dublin based galleries. RUA RED Gallery Tallaght & The Mart Gallery Rathmines. Curators Ciara Scanlan and Matthew Nevin have devised a risk based curatorial outline for an exhibition format with parameters, which the participating artists may work within or destroy. The festival will focus on live durational events and collaboration between digital and live processes.
The curators have chosen predominately female participants, performers and visual artists to make work exploring the notion of danger and risk within art making and society. The participants will produce live experiential artworks and performances that evolve over the week of the festival. The curators will create a stage for the artists to react to: a gallery ‘under construction’. Machinery and objects associated with building industry shall occupy the space ready for alteration, interaction and modifying their mechanics, aesthetics and behaviours.
The artworks will react and interplay with this spectacle to create interactive ‘dangerous & reactionary’ artworks, utilising engineering and arduino programming to enhance the user experience and interaction with the audience. The echoes of the collapse of the construction industry in Ireland has created a society in fear of a repeat bubble already forming in the city. A hesitation to taking risks has meant many suburban and rural towns lay dormant, producing a culture of a ‘people in waiting’.For 2016 the curators want to challenge this fear and become cultural risk activators, inviting artists who work under this umbrella to push the ‘safety’ of the gallery into a challenging experience for artists, curators and audience.
