The Glucksman welcomes Irish artists to submit artwork for our forthcoming exhibition Home: Being and belonging in contemporary Ireland. Details are below and deadline is 9 December 2019:
Home: Being and belonging in contemporary Ireland marks the concluding instalment of a trilogy of exhibitions presented at the Glucksman to mark the Decade of Commemorations through contemporary Irish art. While the exhibitions 2116: Forecast of the next century considered visions of the future ahead and The Parted Veil: Commemoration in Photographic Practices reflected on how we remember the past, this final open submission show brings viewers back to the present to explore concepts of being and belonging in contemporary Ireland.
From critical issues such as housing and the climate crisis, to immigration, multiculturalism and the changing perception of Ireland on the global stage, where and how we live shapes our understanding of who we are. The Glucksman invites artists from across the island of Ireland to submit works in all media that relate to ideas of residency, placemaking, identity, and nationhood.
The exhibition will take place at The Glucksman (Cork), April -July 2020. Curated by Chris Clarke and Fiona Kearney.
Selected artists will be paid a fee of €500. For application details see: glucksman.org/…
