Visual Art: Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship

15 Sep - 29 Oct 2016 (Past)

Crawford Art Gallery

Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship aims to broaden the range of voices, visions, perceptions and approaches to creativity that the public engages with in cultural venues.

It aims to engage the public with valuable knowledge and perspectives that are frequently absent from the world of art.

Opened by Catherine Marshall

With their new exhibition, Cork City Council Arts Office, Crawford Art Gallery and CIT Crawford College of Art and Design are showcasing the artwork of over sixty artists working in supported studio settings worldwide.

The 1916 Proclamation declared its resolve to cherish “all of the children of the nation equally and oblivious of the differences … which have divided a minority from the majority in the past”

In September 2016, as we commemorate the centenary, an exciting variety of exhibitions and events will challenge this resolve bringing colour, energy, imagination and discussion to Cork City. While 2016 is a time to remember the past, it is also an opportunity to re-imagine the future and to expand our perceptions of future possibilities for a brighter more equal society.

From 9 September – 29 October a diverse range of artwork can be seen across ten city venues, seeking to prompt a real dialogue around creativity, ability and the active role that the arts can play in our society.
