A&E Session Seven

21 January 2013

Panelists: Dr.Kevin Atherton, Margaret O'Brien, Mark Ellis, Tracy Staunton,& Debora Ando.

Moderator: Brian Fay



A&E is a critical seminar programme that seeks to open dialogues across a broad range of practices and professional positions. The seventh discussion in the series included contributions by Dr. Kevin Atherton, Margaret O'Brien, Mark Ellis, Tracy Staunton, and Debora Ando, and was moderated by Brian Fay. The discussion explored issues relating to practices of repetition in contemporary art, and its overlap with similar practices in music, film and architecture. Particular areas of interest include aspects of repeated and re-collected time; the recurrence of experience; the relationship between repetition and meaning; and shifting tensions between the original and the reproduction through repetitive processes of manufacture.


This session was an inclusive Q&A dialogue with the audience and occurred in conjunction with the exhibition Repetition, curated by Margaret O’Brien with Niamh Ann Kelly. Repetition is the second in a series of three exhibitions presented by Black Church Print Studio across multiple venues through 2012-13.


Since 2010, A&E has included contributions from Valerie Connor, Brian Duggan, Clodagh Emoe, Sam Keogh, Barbara Knezevic, Sofie Loscher, Colin Martin, James Merrigan, Seán O Sullivan, Tim Stott, and Gemma Tipton.


A&E is a Black Church Print Studio initiative, supported by Monster Truck Gallery & Studios. Free admission, no booking required.
