|11:10 – 12:00||
(Professor of art history in the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego and chair of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.)
Dr Welchman will talk about his upcoming book concerning Paul McCarthy’s Caribbean Pirates, which looks at sea-borne migrations, social violence and counter-statist resistance, using pirates as a modelling device.
|12:00 – 12:50||
Browne will discuss ‘In the Shadow of the State,’ a major collaborative co-commission with Jesse Jones currently in production for Artangel (UK) and Create (Ireland). This work addresses the position of the female body as the focus of repressed histories and political desires under the regulation of the nation State.
|12:50 – 13:30||
Farrelly will discuss the micro-political systems in which we all engage and how these can be examined in the realm of contemporary art.

|14:30 – 15:30||
Szylak will present her past activities as Director of Wyspa Institute of art (2004-2014) and recent project of new Contemporary Art Museum, the programs she has developed there, including the international visual arts festival, Alternativa; and how the notions of labor, leisure, materiality, palimpsest, and polyphony that stem from everyday life in the Baltic port have entered and shaped her own practice as a curator. In this context, many of the artistic and curatorial projects presented by Szylak engage directly with their immediate surroundings, and appear to have trespassed the limits that separate artistic and curatorial gestures.
|15:30 – 16:30||
Artist Brian Maguire will discuss his current exhibition the Kerlin Gallery in Dublin, which directly confronts issues of migration, displacement and human dignity in the face of the current global unrest.
|16:30 – 18:00||
