24 August – 14 September 2018. Opens 23 Aug 6pm.
Many artists are attracted to putting themselves in a different environment in order to generate new work and ideas. The opportunity to do this often comes in the form of Residencies or Exchanges. There are many different models and approaches to these. This exhibition looks at examples of participation in such projects by artists associated with Backwater Artists Group. Featured artists include Fiona Kelly , Leitrim Sculpture Centre / Ratamo Centre Jyväskylä , Finland ; Ben Reilly , GLOGAUAIR studios Berlin ; Éilis Ní Fhaoláin and Eimear Kavanagh, SOJOURN(AL) , Liverpool-Cork.
Experiences will be further shared in an Artists Discussion during the run of the exhibition. (Date tbc).
