Works from the IMMA Collection. Through their curation and installation decisions, the students investigated how bringing the works together might create a critical conversation on the selection, staging and behind-the-scenes aspects of creating an exhibition.
474: mise-en-scène, an exhibition resulting from a collaborative project between the Institute of Art, Design and Technology and IMMA’s National Programme, opens to the public at the Drawing Project Gallery, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin on Friday 8 March 2013. The official opening of the exhibition takes place on Thursday 7 March at 6.00pm at the Drawing Project Gallery.
As a component of their seminar studies module at IADT, graduating students of the BA (Hons.) in Visual Arts Practice co-curated this exhibition of works from the IMMA Collection in response to the theme ‘mise-en-scène’. The project focused on the behind the scenes work of the Museum Collections Department exploring the various aspects of caring for a Collection, including conservation, storage, technical and installation considerations. 474: mise-en-scène consisted of an extensive programme of talks and workshops with IMMA Curatorial, Mediator and Technical staff.
Artists included in the exhibition are Stephen Antonakos, Robert Ballagh, Christo, Michael Craig-Martin, Marcel Duchamp, John Kindness, Sol LeWitt, Paula Rego, Richard Wilson and Paul Winstanley. Through their curation and installation decisions, the students investigated how bringing these works together might create a critical conversation on the selection, staging and behind-the-scenes aspects of creating an exhibition.
A selection of student’s own work is also being shown as part of the exhibition.
