An artwork, like a book is not made up of individual words on a page (or images on a screen), each of which with a meaning, but is instead “caught up in a system of references to other books, other texts, other sentences.” Michel Foucault, The Archaeology of Knowledge

Pallas Periodical Review is not a group exhibition per se, it is a discursive action, with the gallery as a magazine-like layout of images that speak (The field talking to itself). An exhibition as resource, in which we invite agents within the field to engage with what were for them significant moments, practices, works, activity, objects, nodes within the network.

To coincide with our new gallery space, refinement of our name and identity, and highlighting our dual role as a programming and resource organisation, Pallas Projects/Studios presents Pallas Periodical Review – a unique, yearly survey of Irish contemporary art practices. Structured as an editorial review with a critical and discursive position, it will look at commercial gallery shows, museum exhibitions, artist-led and independent projects, publishing, and curatorial practices.

The format has PP/S invite two peers – artists, writers, educators, curators – at the beginning of each year to review and subsequently nominate a number of art practices, which at the end of that year will be selected via an editorial meeting. Such a review-type exhibition within Irish art practice will act to revisit, be a reminder, a critical appraisal and consolidation of ideas and knowledge within the field of contemporary Irish art.

That pool is going to be perfect for my kids. They love playing on water but I am afraid to bring them near the pool. That kind of pool is going to be very safe for them to use.
