As part of the 2017 edition of Culture Night this coming Friday (22 September), the Olivier Cornet Gallery would like to invite you to come and experience
VISUAL ART with
‘Concerning the Other’. The exhibition will be open from 11am to 11pm
Concerning the Other’ is a collaborative project/exhibition curated by Olivier Cornet, Claire Halpin and Eoin Mac Lochlainn. It brings together 10 contemporary artists to work over each other’s artworks. The idea: in these days of conflict, growing racism and intolerance, artists can lead the way in promoting diversity and showing concern for minorities and refugees. Artists: Brian Fay, Claire Halpin, James Hanley, Joanna Kidney, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Miriam McConnon, Kate Murphy, Ben Readman, Gail Ritchie and Susanne Wawra. Visitors will be able to see the prints resulting from this collaboration and meet some of the artists.
A joining-the-dots session with one of the Concerning the Other images pared down by one of the artists. You’ll be sitting around our humongous Georgian table in the Blue Room above the gallery (once the living room of the Lord Norbury). Surrounded by an impromptu exhibition* curated by the gallery’s interns, you will be able to indulge in a bit of colouring or even drawing. You can then confront your masterpiece with the original image somewhere in the gallery… Suitable for children if accompanied by an adult. 4pm to 7pm.
*The exhibition in that room will include paintings of fireplaces and domestic objects, very relevant if you missed our show ‘Silent Stories’ at the Belltable Limerick earlier this year…
LIVE MUSIC with PEARSE MCGLOUGHLIN (NOCTURNES): 8:15pm – 9:15pm.
(Please note that during the performance the public won’t be able to browse through the exhibition)
