Limerick Printmakers Announce Opening of Exhibition by Vincent Pikamu and Leslie
Limerick Printmakers are proud to announce the upcoming opening of ‘I am an asylum seeker but that is not my identity, it’s my experience’, an exhibition of work by Vincent Pikamu and Leslie.
The show will open from 4 pm on Thursday 13th July & will continue Sat 22nd inclusive.
As part of LP’s 1916/2016 Centenary Commemoration programme, five studio members each worked with a group or organisation within Limerick’s communities.
They did this in order to aid them in expressing their feelings on living in Ireland in a visual way. The resultant bodies of work were then exhibited prominently within their communities.
This exhibition is made up of work by Vincent Pikamu and Leslie who met facilitator Joanna Thompson through Doras Luimní, an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation working to support and promote the rights of all migrants living in Limerick and the wider Mid-West region.
In July 1999 Limerick Printmakers was set up by three BA printmaking graduates from the Limerick School of Art and Design, Claire Boland, Kari Fry & Melissa O’ Brien. Limerick City Enterprise Board gave Limerick Printmakers a start-up grant in the form of IRL £12,000 to buy equipment and cover initial overheads.
