Lismore Castle Arts presents the first solo exhibition in Ireland of Massimo Bartolini, in association with Frith Street Gallery, London. Massimo will create a new body of work specially for the space. Born 1962, Massimo Bartolini’s work embraces various materials and techniques, from sculpture and performance to photography. These, often sensual, artworks induce in the viewer a meditative state that is still highly experiential, making us reflect on the relativity of what is stable and unchangeable.
OPENING RECEPTION - SATURDAY 1 APRIL, 5-7PM

Curated by Belfast Exposed
In Spring 2015 Belfast Exposed commissioned a programme of archive-themed exhibitions and events produced in response to its collection of community photography. ‘Short films about learning’ is a single channel video installation which juxtaposes a selection of images taken from the Belfast Exposed archive with excerpts from a lecture series entitled ‘Introduction to Psychology’ by Paul Bloom, a professor at Yale University. The work invites the viewer to consider the images, and the subjects they represent, as a series of codes, patterns of learned behaviours and universal tendencies.
