Student Forum Tour: Scampolo! by Eric N. Mack
Thursday 7 April, 6pm
Ava Chapman, a Student Forum Group member of the Douglas Hyde Gallery, will be facilitating a tour of Eric N. Mack’s exhibition Scampolo!. The tour will focus on the interdisciplinary nature of Mack’s work and the attention to location & place in the artwork. We will focus on the texture and movement of the materials as well as their sourcing. Questions such as: ‘what is a painting?’ and ‘how do we relate, as people existing in space, to the artwork?’ will be raised & discussed.
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.
