Artist's talk by Alan Keane at Istabraq Hall

Thursday 7 October 2010, 1pm
LCGA - OFF SITE at Istabraq Hall, Limerick City Council, Merchants Quay, Limerick

Limerick City Gallery of Art is delighted to present a lunchtime talk by Alan Keane during The Woods exhibition at Istabraq Hall on Thursday 7 October 2010 at 1pm.  "Desktop Surface Thought" (1999) by Alan Keane is exhibited in The Woods, selected from The National Collection of Contemporary Drawing.  The session will include an overview of the "Table of Contents" research project.

Alan Keane is an Artist and Lecturer, his Artistic Practice includes painting and object based work and is informed by notions of Place and Travel. He has been on many Artistic Residencies including NIFCA Vilnius Lithuania, IMMA Dublin and a one month Residency at Sea on the Marine Institutes Research Vessel, The Celtic Explorer.  He has exhibited widely at home and abroad and currently teaches Painting at The Limerick School of Art and Design.

Table of Contents is a project led by Alan Keane, Róisín Lewis, Peter Morgan and Kieran Whitelaw, in collaboration with staff and students at Limerick School of Art and Design. The daily studio practice of artists and designers varies from individual to individual. It can be a period of quiet reflection as much as a rigorous, frustrating engagement with material form or a systematic research of a particular issue.  While the public are usually presented with finished works, they are often quite unaware of the various strategies used by artists and designers to develop ideas. This part of creative practice is normally hidden from view.

Admission is free.
