Artist Talk

Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne

“There is now an expectation of visibility, from any place, at any time and by anyone.”

– Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne on A Visibility Matrix

Dublin-based artists and long-term collaborators Sven Anderson and Gerard Byrne initiated A Visibility Matrix with an invitation to a distributed panel of artists, visual anthropologists, cinematographers, documentary filmmakers and others from across the globe. From the outset, A Visibility Matrix was speculative in nature, a project that included space for the unplanned and unpredictable. In this artists’ talk, Anderson and Byrne will reflect on the trajectory of the work from that invitation to its current form, and on how A Visibility Matrix relates to the politics and conditions of visibility.
