Altered Images, Ballina Arts Centre, Co Mayo
Ballina Arts Centre, Ballina, Co Mayo
Altered Images comprises artworks from the Collections of South Tipperary County Council, Mayo County Council and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition includes work by artists Thomas Brezing, David Creedon, Alice Maher, Caroline McCarthy and Abigail O’Brien, with especially commissioned works by Amanda Coogan and Daphne Wright. This exhibition was first shown in South Tipperary County Museum and will be shown at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2010.
Altered Images works on many levels. Firstly, curatorial decisions were taken to ensure a cohesive body of work. The selected works all make reference to classical or art historical sources either in the method of depiction or their subject matter. While each of the partner organisations has very different Collections in terms of capacity and the period of time they have been collecting, it was agreed at the outset that each would be represented equally. Each art work is accompanied by a multi-sensory display in order to provide meaningful access.
In addition, an audio CD and Braille documentation of the large-print exhibition catalogue are available on request. Sign language tours are available by arrangement and an accessible website for the project can be found at http://www.alteredimages.ie/
