Aaron McLaughlin is an artist and curator originally from Ireland and based in Amsterdam since 2013. His work is multidisciplinary, spanning several media, including curatorial and collaborative practices. Critically employing the methods and technologies we use to live, share, and give value to our lives, his most recent pieces are film-based installations that explore contemporary filmmaking techniques including virtual reality, CGI and stage direction, and incorporate an ongoing interest in writing, roleplay, sculpture, and performance.
In the past years, the artist has been drawn to supporting art practitioners that pertain to progressive movements, primarily through the curatorial project Still Making Art, a platform that aims to support artists in the initial and usually most turbulent stages of their career. In 2020, McLaughlin was invited as an assistant curator for the exhibition Private Song 사적인 노@ at the Doosan Art Centre in Seoul,
