Perspectives: Richard Forrest @ Glucksman Gallery


Thursday September 20th see artist Richard Forrest host a lunchtime discussion in Cork’s Glucksman Gallery from 1pm. Forrest is currently on show in the gallery’s latest exhibition Please Touch, and the talk will see him explore themes raised in that work regarding the experience of an exhibition beyond traditional sight only perception. As part of Please Touch Forrest, along with Rhona Byrne, Maud Cotter and Katie Watchorn, actively encourage their audience to get up close and personal with the works, employing the sense of touch when engaging with the work.

Forrest’s talk is part of a series of discussion with the artists involved, with Cotter and Watchorn due to discuss theirs on the 4th and 11th of October respectively – also at 1pm. All events are free, with booking recommended.More details available online here.
