New to the Workspace Social?
The Workspace Social is a weekly event developed as an alternative format for artists’ talks and networking. Every Thursday, a local or visiting artist is invited to join us for lunch: to discuss a recent project, to share new research or to propose an activity. Participants are welcome to bring along their lunch and to eat with the artist.
The Workspace Social is programmed by Ciaran Nash for Spring-Summer 2018.

Úna's practice is informed by Judith Butler's theory of psychic excess, which is the charge or excess from the unconscious which unsettles what we can perform, such as our identity, subjectivity and gender. Image courtesy of the artist.
