MART Gallery, Rathmines
21 -21 August 2014
Landmarks can be created in the urban environment through the work of the street artist. In a time where little investment is made into the aesthetic life of the city, artists are taking matters into there own hands through commissioned and non-commissioned works in the public sphere. Their art is breathing life into the public space.
The ‘Landmarked’ exhibition will bring some of the best elements of such works under the roof of the iconic fire station in Rathmines – a landmark in itself. The interior walls of the gallery will be covered from top to bottom with the work, making for an immersive experience.
While vibrant and compelling, the exhibition will also be inclusive, reaching out to the members of the street art scene and to the general public, the people of Dublin. A rich mix of music and workshop events will encourage all to engage with the ideas behind the show. A mini jam will also take place during the run of the exhibition, when artists will be invited to paint the back area of the gallery to the sound of live DJs’ music.
