Aisling Ní Aodha
Student Forum Tour
Aisling Ní Aodha has just graduated from Paint and Visual Culture in NCAD, and is a member of The Douglas Hyde Student Forum, a group of students and recent graduates who engage with The Douglas Hyde and its programming in different ways over a period of twelve months. These engagements include leading tours of our exhibitions, participating in reading and discussion groups, and group trips to exhibitions and events. Through these engagements, Student Forum members bring their own research and artistic practices into reflections on the artworks they see, as well as into an ongoing interrogation of the purpose and possibilities of the gallery space.
Ní Aodha will lead a special lunchtime tour of The Mime, the Model and the Dupe by Valérie Blass and The Artist’s Eye: Cynthia Girard-Renard, informed by her own research interests. She is a multidisciplinary, research-driven artist, mainly focused on the aesthetics of environmental perception.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
