Sea Change, IADT 21 years:
Dlr Lexicon Gallery
Haigh Terrace, Dún Laoghaire
14 September – 4 November
This anniversary exhibition includes contributions from alumni in the specialist fields of art, film and animation. The exhibition is curated by Oonagh Young and highlights the diversity of artistic practices that have been developed over twenty one years by graduates.
IADT and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Office have commissioned Sonia Shiel to make a new art work for the exhibition. Shiel will exhibit a split diptych painting. These two paintings will be exhibited together at Sea Change, and then separated afterwards to go to the IADT Collection and the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Collection. The exhibition is a collaboration between IADT and dlr Lexicon to celebrate IADT’s 21st Anniversary.
The exhibition features art works and films by David Beattie, Jenny Brady, Alan-James Burns, Nina Canell, Anita Delaney, Damien Flood, Mark Garry, Adam Gibney, Jesse Jones, Vera Klute, Mateusz Lubecki, Bea Mac Mahon, Maser, Fiona Marron, Ciaran Murphy, Gavin Murphy, Isobel Nolan, Meadhbh O’Connor and Sonia Shiel, and books by Sarah Baume, Fiona Gannon, James Merrigan, Chris Fite Wassilack, Sue Rainsford and Ciaran Walsh.
