Port Perspectives: An exhibition of artworks by Community Drawing Clubs and City Schools in Dublin continues the Hugh Lane’s collaboration with Port Perspectives an initiative of Dublin Port. Curated by Declan McGonagle, Curator of Port Perspectives Engagement Programme, the participating community groups are: Ringsend/Irishtown Community Centre; St Andrew’s Resource Centre, Pearse Street; Seán O’Casey Community Centre East Wall and East Wall Youth Centre. As well as the Drawing Clubs, ten City Schools also participated in this project led by student teachers from the School of Education at the National College of Art and Design.
Their participation and response to the Gallery's exhibition programme has produced a rich and varied body of works which reveal the multiple responses and reflections that are evoked by the theme of Port Life. For further information please contact Jessica O'Donnell or Liliane Puthod, tel. 2225550.
