Kerry Guinan

My practice critiques the neoliberalisation of art through social interventions. Working from within institutions, I use administrative tools such as employment agreements, private sponsorship or state elections to foreground art’s relationshop with the private market. My work is grounded by writing and research on this same topic.

A4 Residency

At A4 Sounds I will be developing an intervention into the upcoming redevelopment of Parnell Square as a Cultural Quarter. Having recently published a paper about the economic motivations of cultural quarters, I will use this residency to manifest this research artistically in an antagonistic work that critiques art’s impact on the housing market.

Presenting the Cultural Quarter

‘Presenting the Cultural Quarter’ is an exhibition documenting a recent intervention into the Parnell Square Cultural Quarter by artist Kerry Guinan. Launched in 2013, the Parnell Square Square Cultural Quarter is a semi-private D.C.C. development which promises ‘renewal and growth’ in the area. In this exhibition the motives and implications of such a cultural strategy are subject to interrogation.
