Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to present ORIGINS, an exhibition of work by 10 emerging artists, selected from the 2013 undergraduate shows at five Irish art colleges: Crawford College of Art & Design, Dublin Institute of Technology, Limerick School of Art & Design, National College of Art & Design and Waterford Institute of Technology.
In June the curatorial team from LCA visited the degree shows across the country to choose works for the exhibition. The artists in the show were selected on the basis of individual merit, rather than a fixed number of artists from each college or giving more weight to some colleges.
Mediums in ORIGINS include painting, installation, video and sculpture representing the key concerns of this year’s fine art cohort. Exhibition highlights include a reconfiguring of an installation by Katerina Hlavacova, from her CCAD show, to suit the bathroom at St Carthage Hall and a new painting by Joe Scullion, made for ORIGINS as all of the works at his NCAD exhibition were sold. Many of the works in the exhibition are available to purchase.
ORIGINS will be an annual exhibition held each autumn in St Carthage Hall as a way of presenting emerging new artists in a collective context.
