SLEEPWALKERS. Michael Dempsey. Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, 2015. Published by Ridinghouse, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 200 pp. 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781905464982 In English.
Publisher's description: Six contemporary artists joined by leading curators and cultural critics research and question the role of museums, curating and collecting in Sleepwalkers, an exhibition catalog from the Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Employing the space of the public gallery as a field for reflection and debate, the artists -- Clodagh Emoe, Sean Lynch, Gavin Murphy, Linda Quinlan, Jim Ricks and Lee Welch -- used the galleries as a place for research over a two-year period (2012-14), each developing a solo installation and a section of the catalog investigating its changing role. Sections devoted to the artists' works are interspersed with essays by English philosopher Simon Critchley and Belgian political theorist Chantal Mouffe among others, who add to this lively contemporary debate their own questions regarding the role and definition of galleries, museums and collecting in the 21st century.
