Undetermined Paths at the Abacus Gallery (photos to follow)
Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy organising and curating an exhibition with Elaine Begley. It was quite a last minute event as we were given the keys to the space only a week before the opening night. Prior to that we had discussed our intentions, invited artists and planned the show in the space of a week. The idea behind the ‘theme’ was as per the description we included in the show invitation:
"Our relationship with nature around is often an everyday occurrence but can also take the form of an awe-inspiring moment. Have urbanisation and advances in technology changed the way we perceive and react to the natural landscape? A multi-disciplinary show featuring photography, sculpture, ceramics, illustration, visuals, collage and printmaking."
This has been a steep but vastly useful learning curve and a real insight into the process of putting on an exhibition. Both myself and Elaine worked together to communicate with the artists we’d chosen and effectively hang their work parallel to the space’s attributes and limitations.
