DLRCoCo Arts / OPW Curator Project at dlr LexIcon
I am currently working on a curatorial project with DLR CoCo Arts Office and the Office of Public Works (OPW). In March 2015 Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (dlr) County Council and the Office of Public Works (OPW) invited a group of older people from dlr County to work with selected artist/curator Claire Halpin to collaboratively select and curate an exhibition of artworks from the OPW Collection for the dlr LexIcon Municipal Gallery in November 2015.
We are meeting for 10 sessions in the Project Room of dlr LexIcon to research and find out more about the OPW collection and two of these sessions will be a rare opportunity to visit the OPW collection housed in St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin to see the art collection first hand. There will be a public engagement series of talks and workshops as well as a celebratory event at the end of the project for all involved in dlr LexIcon.
I have set up a blog to document the selection process.
