Light on the Path
The Friday Event lecture series has been running since the early 1990s and is The Glasgow School of Art’s flagship public lecture programme, bringing major international speakers – artists, architects, designers, historians, and cultural theorists – to the City of Glasgow. They open to a wider audience debates that are central to the research and study within the School, and we are grateful to those organisations with whom we collaborate in helping us to do so. On the February 3rd Pádraic E. Moore presents a lecture entitled Light on the Path. Moore is a writer, curator and art historian. His practice is shaped by the belief that visual art enables alternative modes of interaction in a world increasingly led by technological rationality. His curatorial methodology is meticulous but subjective and is informed by an acute awareness of the artist’s individual position. He is particularly interested in the format of the group exhibition as a platform for making collective, critical statements. Moore is currently curating Communal Enthusiasm, an exhibition celebrating the 75th year of the foundation of the Jan van Eyck Academy Maastricht.
