Workshop for 15-18 year olds at IMMA as part of Open House Dublin
WHEN: Saturday 18th October 2014, 11am-2pm
WHERE: Meet at IMMA’s main reception

This workshop for Open House Dublin is being facilitated by artist and architect Blaithin Quinn and will explore the current IMMA Collection exhibition Conversations. Participants will examine work by artist Caroline McCarthy, which includes a site-specific installation entitled Group Coordination, Red.  In this work, a three-dimensional drawing, constructed from drinking straws, is held in place by the architecture of the exhibition space and by a selection of everyday objects.

 The workshop will start with a visit to the Conversations exhibition, which will give participants an opportunity to view and discuss McCarthy’s work. Following this, participants will work in the studio with non-traditional art materials to develop both individual and group ideas. The working process will be experimental and collaborative, exploring spatial drawing and installation art in the context of the 17th century building at IMMA.
