Our upcoming exhibition ‘Implicated’ is being held at MART exhibition space in Dublin this October. This is an artist–led show running for 2 weeks, with both Irish and international Artists exhibiting. We are interested in looking for sponsorship for our show and hoping you can help!
You are all invited to our private view on the 3rd October 2013. Please come and join us!
A little bit about the show:
Our show proposes to investigate the boundaries of privacy. What are the social rules that govern privacy? These boundaries have been continuously reshaped where the ever-multiplying ways in which we share and authenticate information have influenced our lives. Have we simply formed new rules to govern the etiquette of how much we share and the rights to do so? With such indeterminate values and beliefs in what defines private, we have asked 6 artists where lines can be drawn, tested or revealed as well as investigating the implications on the current cultural psyche and how that informs the way we interact.
The Implicate Collaborative:
This exhibition has been developed by our new artist collaborative 'Implicate', formed by Jill French (BA, MFA) and Emily Bruton (BA, MFA). Emily is based in London currently working in an arts promotion agency and Jill is based in Dublin and has been working in gallery management and artist residency programs since mutually finishing our Masters degree. Having met in NCAD years ago we reconnected over a mutual interest in each others work in practice. We decided to develop our collaborative as we also had similar aspirations for the future of Irish art. We saw a gap in the bridging of contemporary practices with public accessibility and also a segregation between international art and the development of emerging Irish artists.
We have chosen MART as our venue for our first show and are very excited to hold our exhibition in such a cultural and creative hub in Dublin!
How your sponsorship money will help us:
Your sponsorship will be used directly for funding our show. This includes the rental cost of the space, the opening night, a mini catalogue and equipment rental as well as funding to help with transportation of some artworks.
You will be helping a bunch of emerging artists get their foot off the ground in the Irish art world and beyond!
We are over half way to our funding target thanks to all of you for your generous help! We are very excited to get this project off the ground! And we can now confirm hat the minister of the Arts Jimmy Deenihan will be opening our private view on the 3rd of October!
So please make sure to join us for our opening night! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
