MART will host a public workshop with artist David Lunney, the workshop is free and open to all. At this workshop artist David Lunney will give an intro to his string wrapping techniques which he applies to his sculptures and picture frames. Each participant will create a unique colourful woven panel.
David Lunney’s solo exhibition Things Twice (Multiple Times) ran in MART Gallery from September to November, 2018. The exhibition was a showcase of Lunney’s artistic practice, which involves the undertaking of protracted art processes. Typically, these processes start with the construction of site-specific sculptural works in Dublin Mountains. These sculptures are generally created less for their inherent value but rather to provide photographic source material for documentary artworks.

Recent exhibitions include Chrome Dreams at Pallas Projects, April 2018, Re-Inforce MART LA November 2017, Landscape Contortion at Droichead Art Centre, August 2017, Glitch at Rua Red May 2017, Things Made for Drawing at Eight Gallery, 2016, Glencree Intervention at The LAB, 2015.
