Concerned with the unseen, overlooked, or hidden, Invisible is an exhibition that takes what we can’t see as its starting point. Artists, invited and selected from open submission, present work that investigates or challenges the dominance of our visual sense. Hosting a wide variety of materials and approaches, Invisible is an exhibition that explores the desire to look for the truth beyond appearances.
Invisible is presented at various locations around Dublin city, including; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Original Print Gallery, Back Loft, and Digital Hub Development Agency. The individual artworks will create an ‘invisible’ network, existing alongside and in relation to the many places and events they engage with.
Participating invited artists are Gerard Byrne, Brian Duggan, Clodagh Emoe, Martin Healy, Mark Joyce, Se├ín Lynch, Susan MacWilliam, Isabel Nolan, Paul Nugent, Liam O’Callaghan and Sarah Pierce. The exhibition will also include artists selected from an open submission process. John Graham and Margaret O’Brien will also exhibit.
