IRL_ opens at TACTIC, 3rd Floor Sample-Studios tonight Thursday 20 August at 7pm
Curated by Emily O’Flynn, this exhibition brings together 7 internationally based artists; Niamh Riordan, Darren Caffery, Lee Welch, Ian Griffin, Liing Heaney, Leonard Traynor and Emily O’Flynn. Through their work, they investigate the transmutation of art which takes the internet as its source, to the materialisation of work in real life.
With the proliferation of a global Internet culture and the rise of digital art the Internet has become an ever expanding source of data, inspiration and a tool for the creation of art for an entire generation of artists.
This exhibition aims to investigate the many ways these artists interpret our relationship to objects and images inspired by the infinitely variable culture of the net.
IRL_ runs from 20 August – 3 September, TACTIC is open 12- 3 pm Tues – Sat.
