Land │Labour │Capital at Limerick City Gallery of Art on 26-28 September 2013


We are delighted to announce Land │Labour │Capital, an exciting collaboration between Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA), Goldsmiths, University of London and The Future State.  Over three days in September Land │Labour │Capital will bring together leading cultural academics and practitioners to reflect on the relevance of the 1913 Dublin Lockout for the contemporary moment and to foreground radical and alternative narratives for future history-making. Keynotes will be confirmed shortly. Land │Labour │Capital will take place in the LCGA during Labour + Lockout, an exhibition marking the centenary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout: a key moment in Ireland’s industrial history when employers refused to recognize workers in an attempt to break worker solidarity and the trade union movement.

LCGA’s Labour + Lockout exhibition is one in a series of exhibitions examining this moment of commemoration taking place in CCA Derry Londonderry, Belfast Exposed, Temple Bar Studios and Gallery Dublin, Gallery of Photography Dublin and independent spaces in Dublin.

We welcome proposals for academic or practice-led presentations exploring cultural, particularly visual, representations that critique dominant narratives and/or propose alternative futures. For more information refer to the Call for Papers (CFP).

More details to follow soon…
