Session 2 of ‘go beyond art’

Today, we met in Sailortown with our Ulster University student group for the second session of go beyond art, our public art module. We presented an overview of experimental local public art practices and Terry McKeown provided a brief history of Sailortown and the work of Sailortown Regeneration Group.

Our presentations took place in the Mission to Seafarers building on Prince’s Street in Sailortown, and we finished the session with some quick exercises based on Erwin Wurm’s two-minute sculptures to prepare students for the next session: a dérive taking place across Sailortown.
