As part of our Response Series, The Douglas Hyde is delighted to announce a Writer’s Response where writer Stephen Sexton will respond to the work of Bassam Al-Sabah and his current exhibition: IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS
The Douglas Hyde is very pleased to announce an In Conversation event where our Director, Georgina Jackson will talk to Gabriel Kuri about, amongst other things, their collaboration on the spending static to save gas exhibition project.
The conversation will be live cast on our YouTube channel on Thursday 3 September from 6.30 pm.
Working across sculpture, collage, installation and other media, Mexican-born, Brussels-based artist Gabriel Kuri is fascinated by the logic of everyday objects and resources. Often using repurposed materials – natural, industrial and otherwise – he links questions of form with how we value, circulate and assign function. Playing with the principles of minimalism and the history of consumption, he considers the information of materials and information materially.
