Artist Talk—Sibyl Montague & Rachael Gilbourne

Time: 6.30pm Friday 7th September

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

No booking required - free event - all welcome

Join the artist Sibyl Montague who has invited curator Rachael Gilbourne for a conversation in the gallery as they discuss Montague's exhibition Saplings, the ningth exhibition of our Artist-Initiated Projects programme.

Saplings presents a site-specific installation of new sculptural works by Sibyl Montague. It features a series of sculptural objects or 'tools' that explore our relationship to material as physical but flawed representations of inner experience. Based on a speakeasy that Montague's grandfather worked and drank at in New York in the 1920's, the installation takes the physical bar as form and support for the work.

Artist Talk—Bren Smyth & Róisín Bohan

Time: 1pm Saturday 28th July

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

No booking required - free event - all welcome

Join artist Bren smyth in conversation with curator Róisín Bohan as they discuss Smyth's exhibition Substance Of Things currently featured at Pallas Projects/Studios.

Smyth in her work explores both the subject of painting and the painting as an object. Frantic splashes of gesso, ink spills, rubbings, and line drawings cover the page; foundation sketches are quickly obliterated by masses of gesso, which then hide beneath further layers of drawing, a process repeated by Smyth which allows for both accident and discovery.

Biographies

Bren Smyth is a visual artist living and working in Cork City. A native of Dublin, with a background in animation and illustration, she returned to education and completed her BA in Fine Art at Crawford College of Art and Design in 2014. Smyth has exhibited extensively around Cork. She co-produced and designed the exhibition Women of the South at Farmgate Cafe, Cork in 2016, and in 2014 was chosen by Vivienne Roche RHA to exhibit with six RHA artists and five emerging artists in the John P. Quinlan curated show Select in Triskel Christ Church.

Róisín Bohan is an independent curator and arts facilitator. She is a graduate of UCDs MA in Cultural Policy and Arts Management and CCADs BA in Fine Art. She was the 2017 recipient of Black Church Print Studios Recent Graduate Curator Award, with the resulting exhibition Homo Ludens (Man at Play) taking place in The Library Project in January 2018. Other recent curatorial projects include a series of seven performance art events held between 2016 and 2017 in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios as part of their Studio 6 Open programme. She has curated shows in the MART, Rathmines, Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork, and Monster Truck Studios.

‘A Conversation about Rocks’ – Emma McKeagney and Dr David Chew

Join the artist Emma McKeagney in a conversation with geologist David Chew about the rocks which inhabit the exhibition and their journey to being there. Geological processes are at work constantly and how we harness and use them to make art work is a fascination of the artist. They will discuss these processes and how we as humans effect and use them.

This is a Free event. All welcome, no booking required

Biographies

Dr David Chew is an Associate Professor of Geology and Head of Department at Trinity College Dublin. He received his PhD from University College Dublin in 2001.  He teaches tectonics to undergraduate students and his research involves studying plate tectonic processes and ancient climatic events in Earth history using geochronology (isotopic dating of rocks and minerals).

Emma McKeagney’s practice involves working closely with material processes to create bodies of work which incorporate the idea that a process is made up of not only the artist but the material they use and the impending idea of exhibiting. Reading and discussing various topics related to New Materialism, her interest starts with collapsing any hierarchy which puts humans ahead of all other materiality.
McKeagney graduated in 2017 from Dun Laoghaire IADT, Unstable Categories is her first solo-show.
She received Talbot Studio’s Most Promising Graduate Award 2017 and is a recipient of a Sculpture Award from Firestation Artist’s Studios where she developed her work in recent months.
