OUT OF SITE 2007
22-26 August 2007
OUT OF SITE 2007 was a series of live art in public spaces that provided a platform for artists to create dynamic new performative work in public space, while offering the general public the opportunity to experience an exciting and challenging form of contemporary art.
2007 saw 12 commissioned artists/groups explore our relationship with the city; how we navigate, negotiate and experience the urban. OUT OF SITE 2007 followed the success of OUT OF SITE 2006, which took place as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival and OUT OF SITE OUT OF CENTRE, which took place as part of the Rathmines Festival in 2007. The programme sought to engage the accidental audience, the visitors and the citizens who inhabit Dublin’s public spaces.
Participating Artists: LIGNA, Carole Frances Lung, Hugh Cooney & Carl Giffney, Lian Bell, Hope Inherent (Jennie Moran & Tara Kennedy), Fergus Byrne, John Dummet, Sam Hopkins, Andrea Theis, Susanne Bosch, Marylin Arsem, Sandra Johnston, Aileen Lambert.
OUT OF SITE 2007 was funded by the Irish Arts Council, the Goethe Institute in Dublin and Dublin City Council Arts Office.
