No Longer Peripheral is a day-long event hosted by aemi in association with The Douglas Hyde Gallery that will take place in the Robert Emmet Theatre in Trinity College Dublin’s Arts Building on November 2nd 2019.

The idea behind No Longer Peripheral is to spark a dialogue and deepen connections between artist moving image cultures in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The event is envisaged as a live research process that will provide the opportunity to examine art practices in three communities where artist moving image practice is notably dominant. The day-long seminar event will unpick what being peripheral really means and whether the moving image cultures in question have become so rich and productive to have effectively shed any ‘peripheral’ status. The project has numerous potential outcomes and it presents an important chance for Irish, Northern Irish and Scottish artists and practitioners to compare and contrast the interconnected history and culture of artists working with the moving image in these three contexts. The event will also comprise a screening of Irish artist moving image work curated by aemi, a screening of Scottish film works curated by LUX Scotland and a screening of Northern Irish film works curated by AMINI each of which will be followed by group discussion.


No Longer Peripheral has been developed in close collaboration with writer, researcher and lecturer Dr Maeve Connolly from the faculty of Film, Art & Creative Technologies at IADT. As well as aemi, LUX Scotland and AMINI, the event will include contributions from a number of artists, academics, curators and LUX Critical Forum members from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. This event is made possible through the support of the Arts Council.
