There is a Ghost in My House 2 – pop up exhibition @ CIT Crawford College

Panel discussion chaired by Donal Moloney and Tom Helyar-Cardwell ‘There’s a Ghost in my House 2’ – Building on a similar event at Tate Britain in 2014 this event will address the issue of what kind of working relationship contemporary artists might hope to have with painting’s rich but sometimes turbulent history. Does contemporary painting, to gain significance, always have to genuflect to art of the past?

Presentations from: Colin Crotty, Jo Kelly, Maureen O’Connor, Diana Copperwhite, Sharon McCarthy, and Rebecca Bradley.

Here are some images of my work from the pop up exhibition.

Sulumuc Collaborative Project, March 2014

This event recognises that the peripheries are dynamic. SULUMUC…things fall apart the centre cannot hold at Tactic provides the co-ordinates for a series of short acts presented by the artists. These acts represent a temporary halting in a process where the search for meaning is always negotiable. There is a willingness to allow for synchronicity, coincidence, and the potential for the unknown. Three artists present new work for …things fall apart the centre cannot hold…Rebecca Bradley, Julie Forrester and Sharon McCarthy came together whilst studying for an MA in art and process at the Crawford College of Art in 2012. While diverse in their approach to materials, they have found intersections in their methodologies, preoccupations and responses.
