Spare Room: Art - Architecture - Activism in Cork is a two week art exhibition that inhabits a disused building in Cork City Centre. Its theme is framed within the rationale of critiquing institutional complicity within different forms of precarious living conditions. The five arts projects produced for this exhibition strive to move art social practice beyond ‘rehearsals’ of the social into concrete outcomes. It situates art practice firmly within the social through highly innovative collaborative art processes and presents art-led feasible alternatives to collectively organizing and inhabiting the everyday.
