Cruinniú na nÓg at the Hugh Lane Gallery
Saturday 15 June 2019, 2.30pm-4pm
Our Plundered Planet
The artist Mark Dion’s exhibition currently on view at the Hugh Lane Gallery offers commentary on human treatment of the natural environment, tempered with a dose of humour and playfulness. At a time when greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are at historically high levels and the polar glaciers are melting, Dion’s work poses the question of human responsibility - What is the relationship between human beings and our biospheres? Artist Kathryn Maguire invites 13-17 year olds to join her to have their say during a discursive look at Mark Dion’s engaging exhibition with themes explored further through art making in our education studio space.
Free, although advanced booking is required through eventbrite here. Otherwise come along to the Gallery on the day and if spaces are available participants are welcome to join in.
