Black Church Print Studio presents PAST/URES.
Curated by Leah Corbett – Winner of Black Church Emerging Curator Award 2019.
Pastures brings together the work of five artists – Hayley Gault, Catriona Leahy, Dorothy Smith, Ronan Smyth and Katie Watchorn. Through sculpture, painting, printmaking and text, this exhibition explores aspects of rural life in Ireland and highlights questions around rural identity. By drawing attention to the important legacy and material culture of agriculture and craft, the exhibition examines ways in which the traditions of the past have evolved to reflect contemporary society. Set in the context of Dublin’s urban landscape, this contrast invites consideration on how rural communities can retain their distinct identities in the face of potentially homogenising global processes. Pastures is curated by Leah Corbett, recipient of the Black Church Print Studio Emerging Curator Award 2019.
