Do philosophy and art need each other? In what sense might we say that they cling together? In this dialogue we hear from artist John Ryan on his personal relationship to the mixture of philosophy and art. Ryan will discuss in what ways it has helped or hindered his practice. We will also hear responses from philosopher Michael O’ Rourke and visual arts lecturer Sinead Hogan.
The debate will then be opened up to the floor.
