An Instructional – Tour
Norway, United Kingdom, Slovak Republic, Germany, Ireland and USA
June – November 2010
“Manufactured objects raised to the dignity of works of art through the choice of the artist.” Breton
“An Instructional’ was MART’s first large travelling show devised around the ‘Readymade’ approach to art making. We invited artists to submit proposals of work that work uses materials, object’s and concepts influenced by the readymade and re-constructible. Curated by Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan, ‘The Instructional’ aim’s to re-invent the exhibition format with a unique interplay between artist, curator and artwork, challenging each role.
Mart has collated a dynamic collection of Video, Installation, Sound & Performance Visual Art work from contemporary Irish, British, European & North American Artists for ‘The Instructional’ Tour.
MART now has developed an extensive network of connections with contemporary visual art spaces globally and is bringing this inventive travelling show of Artists, all of whom have achieved individual success, to galleries across Europe and North America.
