In-site is the 18th Annual Hunt Museum Exhibition by 2nd Year Painting students from Limerick School of Art and Design. The title refers to the placement of the art-works; the site whereby imaginative new scenarios are created by the students interactions and responses to the Hunt Museum’s collection and the space itself.
In many cases it is the student’s off-site process of thinking and working, engaging with the Hunt Museum staff, the location drawing and photography away from the personal studio environment that enables unique work to be produced.
The strength of this show, like all good creative practice, is that we are taken somewhere else somewhere new, to a different place where we can enjoy the imagination and skill of the students’ creations and their ability to communicate contemporary responses through a variety of media.
Although the work comes from students studying painting at LSAD, it exists within the expanded field of painting practice, whereby digital imagery, installation drawing and object based forms compliment and enrich the medium.
Each student has selected a location for their work that relates to their chosen area of interest whether it’s the paintings, artefacts, the river or the architectural features of the museum. The placement of the students work alongside or in the proximity of the Hunt Museum’s collection or interior space revives the past and transmits a contemporary life to the historical.
The exhibition will run from April 17th – May 10th 2015.
