‘What is Life’ exhibition is a two-venue exhibition that will run in Wexford County Council buildings and Wexford Arts Centre, from 23rd July – 7th September 2018.
The two-venue exhibition will feature the work of ten local national and international contemporary artists working within the parameters of art and science.
This two venue exhibition features the work of Vera Klute, Meadbh O’Connor, Bea McMahon, David Beattie, Eleanor Duffin, Maria McKinney, John Cullen, Gerda Teljeur, Andrew Kenny and Fergus Doyle.
Exhibition reception will take place Friday 20th July at 5.00pm in Wexford County Hall, Carricklawn followed by an exhibition talk at Wexford Arts Centre at 7.00pm.
Co curated by Catherine Bowe and Deirdre Southey, this exhibition consists of a variety of artworks from Installation, photography, drawing and video, which seek to engage the viewer with concepts pertaining to the multiplicities of life and to consider; what is life?
The exhibition explores the potentials for cross disciplinary practice within art and science, what can art contribute to science and vice versa, and how can the visual arts interpret discoveries in science. The works were chosen specifically for their use of scientific enquiry, playfulness and inventiveness both in their artistic production and concepts.
A series of talks will be programmed during the exhibition run and free guided tours offered to the public.
