The Enquiry is a seminar group affiliated with the Graduate School for Creative Arts and Media, Dublin (GradCAM) and hosted by IMMA. It was first convened in 2009 by Georgina Jackson, who was then a PhD candidate with GradCAM. Originally the group was concerned with collating research on seminal counter-exhibitionary strategies. The current working group comprises Jeanette Doyle, Jennie Guy, Fiona Hallinan, Emer Lynch and Kate Strain. We are concerned with developing a performative analysis of exhibition-making modes, both historical and contemporary.
As a culmination of six months of regular meetings, ‘The Enquiry @ IMMA’ was conceived as a platform to perform our practice-based research. The event took place on Friday 15 July 2016, commencing in IMMA’s former bookshop, where visitors were welcomed with warm beverages prepared by Fiona Hallinan.
