APPLY NOW: ART WRITING/Film. Literature. Art. ✏📖🎞 Course Description:
Delivered in Gorey School of Art's 4K Arthouse cinema every Thursday (from September – May, 10-3), Level 6 ART WRITING is a one OR *two-year part-time course. WE read books. WE watch films. WE discuss, write and reflect on art in class and field trips. WE look at art through the lens of literature and cinema, exploring the creative, critical and abstract-thinking skills required to write, think and feel through art. Students will develop their imaginations and gain personal insights through a deep and meaningful exploration of film, literature and art, both historical and contemporary. *Two-year course option is where Art Writing and Art Making collide. Divided between Art Writing in Year 1/and Art Making in Year 2, you attend one day a week during Year 1, and three days a week during Year 2, or vice versa. SEE gsa.ie for more information and applications.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION - Peripheries 2019 | Lonely Cloud | George Muncey (b.1995) is our invited artist for Peripheries 2019. George is a fine art film photographer based in London, working primarily with large format cameras, which evoke the camera obscura, a forerunner of the modern camera which artists like Vermeer used to make paintings almost 400 years ago. Instead of taking self portraits, George turns his lens toward people who he can relate to, and captures landscapes and scenes which aim to show the country in its current pivotal state. His photographs are excerpts from an ongoing exploration of his identity, and his relationship with the United Kingdom.
Within a blended family of analogue and digital George also makes videos and a print magazine under the name of Negative Feedback, aiming to inform, celebrate and champion everything about film photography in the digital age, with what he describes as “love and care”. We first became interested in George's work through his informational videos on his YouTube channel, Negative Feedback, which we share with our film and photography students here at GSA. The students naturally relate to his way of working across different platforms, online and offline.
23 years of age, George uses online platforms to communicate his story, his evolution as an artist, and contribute to his community and to the photography community at large with his photography, zines, videos and interviews with the emerging and established (those terms again) of the photography world. Couple this with the knowledge that George is a huge figure in the world of YouTube and we arrive at a strange juncture. His channel Negative Feedback has over 185,000 subscribers, which is a fact that would leave most contemporary artists uncomfortable as it brings us closer to something commercial. It is this tension that we want to explore during Peripheries 2019. @gmunchiez @negativefb #peripheryspace #contemporaryphotography #filmphotography #photography
UPCOMING EXHIBITION - Amanda Doran is our Paul Funge Resident Artist for 2018/19: a residency that awards an individual or small group/collective 24/7 access to a studio space, a €2000 bursary, mentorship, an exhibition, and access during normal opening times to facilities such as a print studio, computer room, library, fabrication room and photography studio.
Amanda used her time on the residency to challenge herself with a portrait project that was reminiscent of traditional portrait setups but approached in a fresh, fun, social and engaging manner. Her space quickly became an inviting, almost domestic place for people to meet and chat. Using humble drawing materials Amanda spent her time recording her sitters through her typical energetic, free flowing and fun mark-making explorations.
