Join artist and academic, Austin McQuinn who will informally be in conversation with exhibiting artist Kevin Mooney. They will discuss the ideas and processes of the work in the current exhibition Fragments of San Borondon, as well as looking at the approaches and developments in the artist’s broader practice.
Artist and writer, Austin McQuinn has had solo exhibitions and performances at DCP, San Francisco, Project, Dublin and Butler Gallery and Kilkenny Castle. His work is held in public and private collections in Ireland, UK and USA. His upcoming book titled Acoustic Creatures: Sounding animality in performance will be published by Penn State University Press in Spring/Summer 2020.
Kevin Mooney’s new exhibition, Fragments of San Borondon, traverses boundaries between history and myth. His paintings and sculptures originate from his curiosity about the histories of migration of Irish people to Caribbean islands in the 17th and 18th centuries and also his interest in the culture making actions of migrants in general. Chosen as part of an Open Call by Triskel in 2018, the exhibition opened in Triskel’s Gallery Space on Thursday 5 September at 6pm and will run until 31 October.
