Here’s another great reason to pop in.
A stunning exhibition of fine art prints by emerging artists, presented by Cork Printmakers, is now open at Nano Nagle Place until December 4th, 2022.
Working in screen-print, etching, and relief processes, teenage artists Amal Hope, Elton Sibanda, Fionnuala O’Connell, Reem, Viktoria Kondratieva, and Yeaneah O’Connell were inspired by the themes of identity, culture, perception, and belonging.
Their work was developed with the support of Cork Printmakers staff and tutors as part of The Young Print Collective, a project designed to serve young refugees, asylum-seeking, and migrant people who have demonstrated exceptional artistic talent.
“The exhibition gives voice to the artists and their unique perspectives, expressing feelings of duality and otherness, and their experience of connectedness through their artwork.” a spokesperson for the project explained.
“The exhibition places the artist’s experiences and work within the context of Nano Nagle Place, a site of ongoing creative collaboration between Cork Printmakers, Cork Migrant Centre and Nano Nagle Place and where the artists first worked with Cork Printmakers in 2019 and 2020 before the establishment of the Young Print Collective.”
The Young Print Collective is open daily from 11am to 5pm excluding Mondays.
