Mary Conlon is the third recipient of the Shinnors Scholarship – MA in Curatorial Studies. (2009-2011) She has now progressed to a PhD. Prompted by the imminent redevelopment of the historic Carnegie Building housing LCGA and its original function as the Carnegie Free Library and Museum, she is interested in the relationship between visual arts and literature.
Conlon initiated a series of social, public readings - Carnegie Reading Circles that shift a traditionally private activity into a public performance. As part of the LCGA off-site programme, she will organise a series of exhibitions and events under the name of Six Memos which refers to Italo Calvino’s lectures Six Memos for the Next Millennium. The series will be divided into chapters, each with a distinct area of investigation.
