A workshop on The Utopia of Access and Data Analytics, the workshop on data mining and data analytics will be led by Prof. John Kelleher, Dublin Institute of Technology.

A panel discussion with Art Way of Thinking and current Phd candidates Grainne Coughlan and Jye O’Sullivan.

A live presentation by GradCAM’s The Aesthetics Group (Mick O’Hara, Cathy O’Carroll, Connell Vaughan and Jeanette Doyle) in response to Michael Bell-Smith’s Birds Over the White House (2006), specially re-purposed for The Research Pavilion (2017), courtesy of the artist and Foxy Production, New York.

The Enquiry (Jeanette Doyle, Jennie Guy, Emer Lynch and Deborah Madden) will deliver a sequence of screenings, specially created artworks and live presentations. The Enquiry are also curating objects and images from the Cf project in the Research Pavilion.

Performances, seminars and interventions by current doctoral researchers in GradCAM (Irina Gheorghe, Mike Glennon, Cathy O’ Carroll and Tommie Soro) and lectures/seminars by senior researchers including Dr. Glen Loughran, Martin McCabe, Dr.Conor Mc Carrigle, Dr. El Putman.

 

Cf is an International project, by artist Jeanette Doyle (Ireland) for GradCAM @ The Research Pavilion, Venice. Cf uses the Biennale as its template with particular attention to the staging of National Pavilions where over 150 artists and curators from all parts of the globe are representing a nation of their own choosing in a manner of their own determination.Cf will be manifest in Venice as a series of projections, the temporal selection of which will be determined by an algorithm, representing videos and sounds files which capture international iterations of the project. Cf subtly subverts the well-worn Biennale model by allowing both selected and self-selecting artists/participants to nominate and represent their chosen country in a manner of their own determination. Parallel to these broad conceptual concerns, Cf also seeks to question emergent modes of production, presentation and dissemination of art as well questioning the forces, which allow the production of objects and ideas to find a home within the ‘artworld’.

 

Cf is produced in partnership with the:artist:network, New York with collaborations from the U.S., Taiwan, Thailand, China and others and is supported by The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin and Science Foundation Ireland. Of particular note is The Border Pavilion, curated by Raul Zamudio, a program of video works by international artists that touch upon the global geopolitics of immigration and includes a live performance by Holly Crawford. Cf also features a special contribution by The Reversible Destiny Foundation established by Arakawa and Madeline Gins in 2010.

 

Following a successful and well-received pilot edition in 2015, the University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki) has again realized a Research Pavilion within the context of the Venice Biennale. The project is implemented in co-operation with the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Swedish Arts Universities’ collaboration Konstex. This new edition is lasting five months (from early May to mid-October) and is undertaken as a Nordic collaboration together with institutional partners outside Scandinavia, this year including the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Zurich University of the Arts. GradCAM @ The Research Pavilion, Venice is kindly supported by Culture Ireland, Dublin Institute of Technology and Science Foundation Ireland.
