Angelica is a network of artists, that aims to amplify the voices of self-identifying women and non-binary artists of minority cultural and minority ethnic backgrounds who are based on the island of Ireland.
This collaborative engagement programme between RHA and Angelica invites Angelica artists to respond, via an intervention, to one or more pieces in the RHA exhibition programme. Interventionist practices often enable opportunities to propose alternative perceptions on institutions and narratives, and may take the form of an artistic response, a talk/panel discussion or workshop and will be informed by ideas of representation.
Angelica was created to lead to fruitful relationships and new opportunities, designed to help curators and programmers to work with and nurture a more diverse art community; one which is built on care and accountability.
The first intervention, an online screening of a performance, followed by a Q&A, Darling don’t turn your back on me by artist Thaís Muniz, takes place on Sunday 11 July, in response to Denis Kelly’s Ashford exhibition Look, then look again. This performance is the first in a series of five interventions, with other upcoming interventions including artist Hina Khan, in response to Miriam O’Connor’s Ashford exhibition Tomorrow is Sunday, artist Edy Fung, in response to Barbara Knežević’s exhibition Pleasure ‘Scapes, and artist Samantha J Brown.
