7 to 29 April
The NCAD Gallery is pleased to present, Blueprint For A Storm a solo exhibition of works by Russell Mills. Painter, designer, musician, stage designer and creator of complex multimedia installations.
Mills is perhaps best known for his distinctly personal and richly textured album covers for Brian Eno, Nine Inch Nails, David Sylvian, Michael Nyman and Peter Gabriel, among many others, and influential book covers for the likes of Samuel Beckett, Milan Kundera, Ian McEwan and Jayne Anne Phillips. He has also produced work for Amnesty International, the British Council, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Friends of the Earth and Oporto Expo 2000.
Inspired and informed by ideas of contingency, indeterminacy, control and surrender, his interdisciplinary approach has led him to create films, stage visuals and lighting for some of the most innovative contemporary performers of recent decades, including Harold Budd, Siobhan Davies, Sidsel Endressen, Brian Eno, Jan Garbarek, Jon Hassell, the Hilliard Ensemble, The Necks, Nils Petter Molvaer, Arvo Part, Terry Riley, John Surman, David Sylvian and Wire. He has also produced generative lighting and film for the Festival of Visual Music in Lanzarote, the Brighton Festival and the Punkt Festival in Norway.
The exhibition Blueprint For A Storm at the NCAD Gallery brings together a selection of Mills work including: a compilation of multimedia installations and interventions, extracts from selected film works and stage visuals and lighting, his painting, music compositions and design.
Blueprint For A Storm will coincide with the Offset conference for design and creative industries scheduled on the 8th,9th and 10th of April 2016 in Dublin. Russell Mills is scheduled to speak at the Offset Conference on Saturday 9th April 2016, at 1pm – tickets are available: www.iloveoffset.com/offset
