How the Image Echoes
an exhibition with and about painting, curated by Dougal McKenzie
Brian Bishop, Majella Clancy, Susan Connolly, Joy Gerrard, Christopher Hanlon, Paddy McCann, Dougal McKenzie and Louise Wallace
Ends 21 September 2019
Featuring works by Brian Bishop, Majella Clancy, Susan Connolly, Joy Gerrard, Christopher Hanlon, Paddy McCann, Dougal McKenzie and Louise Wallace, this exhibition seeks to address the ways in which the artists’ works may be considered within our wider ‘image culture’ today.
The digital world of the camera, the screen, social media and the
internet have, in less than two decades, created immeasurable numbers of images
across new platforms.
This exhibition seeks to raise the questions:
What constitutes ‘an image’ when making art, and what, if anything, makes this different from the other multifarious ways of delivering images as outlined above?
Following on from this exhibition,
‘How the Image Echoes' a painting symposium
will examine the ways in which painters today think about images, and how they play a role in their work.
The symposium is free but please book your place through the link.
Panel speakers: Artists Brian Bishop, Majella Clancy, Joy Gerrard, Dougal McKenzie, Louise Wallace, and poet Padraig Regan.
