LSAD are delighted to host SYMBOLS: Culture of Death and Cultural Life, a Creative Europe Project under the European Commission.
Attending the exhibition were show curator Des McMahon, LSAD and exhibiting artist James Kearney, Clonmel Co. Tipperary.
LSAD are one of the seven partners in this Creative Europe project which is running from 2014-2016. This exhibition will feature work from international printmakers, dancers and musicians from 7 European countries. This show embraces not only the work created by these artists during two residencies responding to the theme of symbols, one in Aviles, Spain and one in Dundee Scotland and includes work by Limerick artists, musicians and dancers, Gemma Dardis, Mary O’Dea, Jennifer Brown and Hannah Fahey, but also offers a response by the students of the printmaking department in LSAD to the historic Limerick cemeteries of Mount St. Lawrence and St. John’s. The students created an exciting and thought provoking body of work which is showing along side these international artists. Picture: Alan Place/Fusionshooters
