IMMA presents a group exhibition of emerging Irish and international artists addressing some of the broader concerns of Generation Y (often termed Millennials, or those born during the 1980s and early 1990s). From political points of departure such as borders, housing, and the environment; to the personal such as mental health, hook-up culture, gender identity and the precarious nature of their portfolio lives. These issues are pressing but have no simple solutions.
Themes are addressed by the exhibiting artists through diverse means from traditional painting, sculpture and photography, through to installation, social media, street art, workshops, dance, performance and club culture. This exhibition neither poses questions nor presents solutions but reflects on our present tensions.
Artists will include Marie Farrington, Saidhbhín Gibson, Helio Léon, Brian Teeling and Susanne Wawra amongst others.
The exhibition is accompanied by an experimental publication with text by Seán Kissane, Curator: Exhibitions, IMMA, Poi Marr, Curator, Glasgow International, and Benjamin Stafford, Assistant Curator: Exhibitions, IMMA.
Performances curated by Poi Marr, Curator, Glasgow International.
