Figuring It Out, Tallaght Community Arts, Co Dublin

17 November - 5 December 2009
Tallaght Community Arts, Rua Red, Tallaght, Co Dublin

Figuring It Out  features artworks focusing on the human figure by Irish and international artists represented in the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s Collection, including artworks by Amanda Coogan, Antony Gormley, Isabel Nolan, Denis Oppenheim and Beverly Semmes. The exhibition is a continuation of Tallaght Community Arts and the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s long-standing partnership as part of IMMA’s National Programme. The exhibition marks the first occasion that they have worked together in the new Rua Red exhibition space. Since March students from Jobstown Community School have been working with Tallaght Community Arts and IMMA’s National Programme exploring the process of curating an exhibition. These students have assisted with the curation and delivery of Figuring It Out . Artworks made in response to the IMMA artworks by the students are also shown.
