Opening at the Project tomorrow night is Conjuring For Beginners, a major group show curated by Teresa Giblin and featuring Sam Keogh (IE), Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel (FR), Angela Fulcher (UK/IE), Ruth E. Lyons (IE), Zbyněk Baladrán (CZ), Janice Kerbel (CA) and Susan Philipsz (UK). According to the Project website:
Visual arts is taking over Project Arts Centre this summer to present three unique exhibitions and our most ambitious project to date.
Conjuring for Beginners will transform the building; the Space Upstairs will become a giant gallery filled with sculpture on an enormous scale, by one of Ireland’s most promising young artists Sam Keogh; the Cube will be home to a trio of artworks, light, sound and video installations by Janice Kerbel (CA/UK), Zbynek Baladrán (CZ) and the 2010 Turner Prize winning artist Susan Philipsz (UK); and in the gallery the final piece of the exhibition will be a collection of playful sculptures as the works of Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel (FR), Angela Fulcher (UK/IE) and Ruth E. Lyons (IE) play out side by side.
Conjuring for Beginners runs at Project Arts Centre from 3 July until 11 August 2012, admission is free and the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks and special events
