TEXT/ Periodical Review #8 Exhibition
Each year, Pallas Projects invite two peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – to review and subsequently nominate several art practices, selected via an editorial process. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice acts to revisit; to be a reminder, a critical appraisal, and consolidation of ideas and knowledge; to facilitate and encourage collaboration, crossover, and debate. Not a group exhibition per se, Periodical Review is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (the field talking to itself). This is the exhibition as a resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with and re-present what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects: nodes within the network.
