Generation / People-Tools-Cities
…..on Thursday the 26th of March at 7pm. Both exhibitions run until Sunday the 26th of April.
Generation is a public participation project with GASP (Glasheen Art Studio Program). The project invited people of varying ages to create works on the subject of age; the work of both children and older people will be presented together, portraying the curiosity and magic of childhood through to the experience of those in later years. The project provides opportunities for people from different generations to meet, interact and support each other’s creative process. Generation is in collaboration with St Luke’s nursing home in Cork and Cork Educate Together National School.
People-Tools-Cities will feature the work of three artists from GASP who have been working in Cork city; each artist focusing on a chosen subject. Yvonne Condon considers the portrait, inspired by the black and white photographs of August Sander shown at Sirius in 2014. Idé Ní Shúilleábháin focuses on tools, influenced by Konrad Klapheck paintings, while Rosaleen Moore explores the city, observing buildings and painting from memory.
There will be a number of additional events associated with this project: guided tours (schools/public) & a pop-up cafe every Thursday between 12-2pm. Meet the artists every Saturday between 3-4.30pm. There will also be a response zone in place for the duration of the exhibitions with paper and drawing materials provided for the public to engage and make their own artwork.
GASP is developed through the COPE Foundations’ Arts Programme and is directed by Hermann Marbe.
