Occupy Space Limerick: About Us

Occupy Space provides a platform for local, national and international artists, welcoming a diverse range of practices and promoting Limerick as a hub for contemporary visual art. Occupy Space is a not-for-profit organisation that has established a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events to engage the local audience and to open up a critical dialogue with the wider visual art community. The fundamental objective of the organisation is to provide exhibition opportunities for graduate and emerging artists outside of the context of a commercial gallery space. Occupy Space is operated by a voluntary staff, providing experience in event management, facilitating exhibitions and developing potential for independent curatorial projects.”

Art as Social Practice 
“What is it? A new genre? A new “ism”? A new movement?”
NO
Art as Social practice is NOT a genre, it is NOT a movement, and it is NOT an “ism!!!” At least I don’t think it is! Social Practice is simply (or not so simply) just a way in which art EXISTS! It’s medium is “social.” Just like painting uses paint, sculptors use objects, material, and space…. Social Practice uses “social.” What is “social?” 
1.) people 
2.) the things and spaces that surround people. 
3.) the social structures that define, control, and affect those people, things, and spaces. 
4.) the interactions between all of the aforementioned. 
Social Practice is an art and design practice, or in other words a creative practice. It is often “socially engaged,” it thrives off of the participation of others, or the intervention into others’ lives. Social practice, in essence, is a creative practice that often focuses on creating new ways to exist in and understand the world. It is not object based, although, objects are not excluded. The “product” of social practice rarely manifests in the exhibition space, but rather in the “everyday,” or public space. Social Practice is rarely commodified, making it, in my opinion, more likely to remain creatively dynamic and pure. Social Practice uses creative means to create vibrant and interesting pedagogical experiences. 
Social practice is just another way for creativity to exist. It is not caught up in trying to separate the words “creativity,” “art,” and “life.”

More now than ever, there are ethical environmental implications associated with the creation of art. Artists today must be aware of the impact their art and arts practices have on the environment.
