GRAFT is the first collaboration of its kind between the Glucksman Gallery and the National Sculpture Factory. GRAFT will feature five unique pieces of art at key locations throughout Cork city and aims to create a novel artistic experience for audiences in the city and online.
Five individual artists based in Ireland have been commissioned to create a temporary installation each, which will be unveiled on the 17th September, as part of Culture Night, and will be in place until 31st October.
The artists selected are Linda Quinlan, Bríd Murphy, Adam Gibney, Seodín O’Sullivan and Vanessa Donos López. All were invited to take part in the exhibition by the curatorial team who evaluated each artist’s practice on the basis that it could be imaginatively adapted to the temporary public space.
Each artist is working on a site-specific sculpture to be produced and presented in consultation with the two organisations:
