Cleo Fagan is a curator based in Dublin. She is interested in work that shrinks the distance between audience and artwork and makes the audience a participant in the work. The idea of art as a gift is one that occupies her practice: a gift that potentially invites thought, questioning, a sense of vitality, possibility and perhaps empowerment in those that feel invited to openly encounter it. Outside of a small art fluent audience she questions how receptive the public is to this gift. These central motivations involving audience expansion and the consideration of notions of self-actualisation fused to result in her work with Mobile Art School.
