From Context to Exhibition is a contemporary look at how artists seek to translate collaborative processes and practice into the context of the white space. The work presented in From Context to Exhibition forms part of The Learning Development Programme, an experiential learning programme for student artists in fine art courses who want to engage with communities of place and/or interest, and learn more about collaborative arts practice. Each year the student artists work with different communities around Dublin to co create artwork.
This year the diverse work presented encompasses broad themes of collaboration, some which focus on community as source material; and some which is the result of community as co-creator or as communities of interest The students worked with a variety of groups and organisations including a recycling centre; temporary skate park, animal rescue centre and LBGTQ group around marriage equality.
