Concerning the Others
5th March – 6th April 2019
Concerning the Other is a collaborative art project which brings together ten artists to create a hundred collaborative artworks. The concept for this project is that in these days of uncertainty, mounting racism and intolerance, artists can take a lead in promoting diversity and showing concern for minorities and for refugees from areas of conflict. Ten selected artists responded to and took account of each other’s work in a collaborative process which took place over ten weeks in 2017. The collaborative nature of this project is particularly relevant in these turbulent times and it resulted in surprising and engaging artworks. The Artists: Brian Fay, Claire Halpin, James Hanley R.H.A, Joanna Kidney, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Miriam McConnon, Kate Murphy, Ben Readman, Gail Ritchie and Susanne Wawra.
Preview Reception: Saturday 2nd March at 2pm
