Gerda Frömel and Diogo Pimentão

Fri Mar 27th, 2015

You are invited to a reception to mark the exhibition openings on Thursday 09 April 2015 from 6-8pm.

Gerda Frömel: A Retrospective
10 April – 5 July 2015

This is the first retrospective of the sculptor Gerda Frömel since 1976. Born in the former Czechoslovakia in 1931, Gerda Frömel moved to Ireland in 1956 and built her career here. An incredibly well-regarded artist during her lifetime, Frömel’s work was neglected after her untimely death in 1975. This exhibition of sculpture, drawing and archive materials, seeks to reinstate Frömel as a Master of Irish Modernism. Read more on our website

This exhibition will travel to F.E. McWilliam Gallery and Studio, Co. Down in August 2015.

Diogo Pimentão: Disequilibrium Displacement
10 April – 5 July 2015

This is the first presentation in Ireland by Diogo Pimentão (born Portugal 1973). His drawings blur the lines between sculpture, installation and performance using the simple materials of graphite, paper and stones. Through fixing and folding paper he opens the horizon of the drawing and its conventions to other dimensions, other processes and other tools. Read more on our website
