Writing is... Art

Writing is…Art / with Kathryn Scanlan and Maria Fusco

I spoke at this writers' event, convened by Maynooth University's writer-in-residence, Susan Tomaselli.

'We never look at just one thing; we are always looking at the relation between things and ourselves. Our vision is continually active, continually moving, continually holding things in a circle around itself, constituting what is present to us as we are.’

In 1972, John Berger published his seminal text on art theory. Ways of Seeing taught us that art needed language and required a narrative to make sense. Hosted by writer-in-residence Susan Tomaselli, this series of events extends Berger’s theories on art into the wider creative field, exploring practice with leading writers, artists, and publishers.
