Standard Exhibition @ ArtBox
Opening tonight in ArtBox on Dublin’s James Joyce Street is Standard Exhibition, and exciting group show featuring 6 emerging artists – Neil Carroll, Conor Mary Foy, Olivia Hassett, David Lunney, Alex de Roeck and Zoe Sheehy. The exhibition is curated by former Monster Truck curator and current OPW Registrar Davey Moor – Moor also provides writings, along with the artists themselves, to the show’s accompanying publication Six Conversations About Flags.
The exhibition, as alluded to in the publication’s title, sees works around the theme of flags, be they vessels for “psychological terror through esoteric symbolism; ambiguous markers of uncertain intent; micro-heraldry? or conduits for elemental power; alternative (symbol) facts; all artwork are flags?“. The show opens tonight from 6pm – 8pm and continues until April 8th. Full details, including information on a forthcoming panel with Stanislav Zamyatin (CEO of Vexillology Ireland), can be found here.
