Peer Critiquing for Visual Artists with Ruth Carroll
As artists, we also need a second “set of eyes” on our work to know how our work can be improved. We need to understand how our work is perceived by our audience – the viewer. This is where critique becomes an important part of our development as artists. With this in mind Creative Frame is running a series of critique clinics where a number visual artists will get an opportunity to spend one to one time with Ruth Carroll, director of The Dock Arts Centre.
Ruth Carroll is a curator and project manager with over twenty years’ experience in the
visual arts sector. Currently Director of the Dock, she has a particular
interest in work made in and around the rural and how visual art practice can be considered
as a way of agitating and disrupting the preconceptions of the rural. Current projects
include Cliodhna Ni Anluain, Harry Walsh Foreman, Adam Gibney, Bennie Reilly, Celina
Muldoon and a major research project looking at the North West as a place of production.
She was previously Curator at the RHA in Dublin. She is also an expert in the contemporary
art market, advising key private and public collections. She holds a BA Int. in Italian and
English, a H.Dip. in Art Administration, a H.Dip. in Management Practice and a Diploma in
Project Management from the IMPA.
To apply for a one to one clinic with Ruth, please provide
- A brief description of your practice
- A description of why you want to engage at this time and what you hope to gain from the critique
- Two or three images of work you’d like critiqued
