For the annual Painting Show, more than thirty 2nd year students came together to create two individual circular artworks.

The first panel relates to the students’ interpretation of the Hunt Museum’s art collection, which encompasses over 2,600 works from accredited artists such as Picasso, Giacometti, and Renoir. 

The second panel created by the artists relates to the interconnectedness of nature, the environment, gender and music – all responding to the surroundings of the Hunt Museum and beyond, including the River Shannon.

The works on show will symbolise how artists throughout history have investigated and explored these contexts and how contemporary artists engage and create with the real world. 

The exhibition breathes a new life into the subject and offers a diverse and imaginative response from the artists.

The exhibition will have a wall displaying the sixty circular pieces and a Wunderkammer, also known as ‘cabinets of curiosity’, dating back to the Renaissance, when artists and collectors began collecting exotic and bizarre objects and had them openly on display.

The LSAD Radius Exhibition will have a Wunderkammer of research objects, images and curious items the artists used to relate to their subject area and sense of investigation.

The student’s Wunderkammers will be available as a set of postcards and can be purchased at the exhibition. 

The price of the works on sale at the exhibition will be €80, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to Limerick-based refugee and migrant support organisation Doras.
