The Core Project Call Out 2017

The Core Project <> - an international Art
Project is seeking participants around the world to become part of a global
art experiment.

The Core Project is a contemporary visual art project, led by
Artist/Curator Matthew Nevin <>. The project
will feature 200+ Videos; that will be showcased online, through an
experimental film, and in a large scale installation
<> in September 2017 in RUA RED
<> Gallery Dublin.

Each video contains a single person representing all of the sovereign
states of the world responding to a secret question. These participants are
provided instructions on how to film, including the previously unseen
question which they do not view until filming has begun. Furthermore this
question will only ever be revealed to the participants of the project.

The project focuses on the accumulation of an ephemeral art public,
analysing the process of each of the participants understanding of the
question, exploring their visual set up [how they set up the camera, their
‘visual scene’], their method and practice in participating in the project.

The Core Project’s activities and participation aim to create an inclusive,
international art public. It is the goal of the project to operate as a
social and cultural experiment in assessing “participation in political
activity”. This method of everyday participation and utilization of
artistic political engagement is essential to the project’s inclusive
strategy. (Deutsche, 1998, p.288, Evictions: Art and Spatial Politics.)
