Free NCAD exhibition at Light House Cinema

Twenty-two artists from postgraduate programmes at NCAD are to showcase their developing work in the ‘camera obscura’ setting of the Light House Cinema. The exhibition is free of charge (a relief in these recessionary times!) and is open to the public daily from 1.30pm-9pm from March 27 until April 6, 2009. The students will showcase work from a broad range of media, including design, digital arts, painting, photography, installation, performance and sculpture.
Camera obscura refers to a darkened chamber in which images of external objects are exhibited in their natural colours on a surface arranged to receive them. The Light House’s layout and spacious exhibition area lends itself perfectly to such a show. Camera obscura is not simply an optical tool or instrument; it is a way of seeing. The Light House will also provide a space for meditation and artistic discovery to those visiting the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature Ian Russell, a freelance curator formerly involved with the Irish Museum of Modern Art; the Green On Red Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin; University College Dublin CREATE; and the Here Arts Centre in New York. A widely respected voice on contemporary art, anthropology and heritage, he will guide visitors through the exhibition as each artist presents their various themes demonstrating the insights of a new emerging artistic generation. The artworks on display are indicative of the ongoing observations of the outside world by the artist. They will offer an insight into the world as viewed by the first year MA students.
Artists include Artist 2426, Catherine Barragry, Paula Barrett, Owen Boss, Adam Burthom, Sylvia Hemingway, Gareth Jenkins, Lisa Marie Johnson, Tony Kenny, Michael Lyons, Kathryn MaGuire,
Colin Martin, Eileen Mills, Aishling Muller, Deidre Noonan, Maria O’Brien, Tom O’Dea, Marie Louise O’Dwyer, Sean O’Dwyer, Laragh Pittman, Ane Sagatun, Ciara Scanlan andDaryl Slein.
