TRANSITION is a site-specific art exhibition held at 33 Mill St., a large factory space that is awaiting transformation into a whiskey distillery. Built in 1691 this building has served many uses over the years, from a rabbit skinnery to most recently, a sofa factory. For the moment, the 10,000 ft. space lies vacant, in a state of transition.
‘Transition’ implies a sense of change, an altered state. It implies a point of passage, hovering between here and there. 33 Mill St. is temporarily floating between functions, it drifts between old and new, between run-down and well preserved. This exhibition serves to engage with and amplify this idiosyncratic space. Through content and materials, all artworks respond in someway to the context of the building and its sense of fleeting temporality.
There will be work on show from 13 emerging artists. The work will range from painting, print, photography and video, to large-scale sculptural works, dynamic sound and installation.
The exhibition opens with a wine reception at 6pm on Thursday the 18th of April and is open on Friday the 19th of April from 12-6pm.
Artists: Nick Boon, Gwen Burlington, John Conway, Cara Coyle, Ann-Marie Delaney, Michael Dignam, Michelle Doyle, Muriel Foxton, Cliona Ni Laoi, Joann O’ Meara, Joe Scullion, Andrew Shannon, Sean Wright
