To mark the opening of the exhibition Raivo Puusemp – Dissolution, Project Arts Centre is
delighted to welcome curator Krist Gruijthuijsen to Dublin. On Thursday 8 November at 5pm, he
will host a walk-through tour of the gallery, speaking about the development of the ideas behind
the exhibition, the processes involved in researching and developing the show, and the wider
practice of participating artists Raivo Puusemp (EE/US) and Ben Kinmont (US).
This exhibition is the first comprehensive overview of Puusemp’s work produced between the mid-
1960s and late 1970s. The exhibition presents documentation and materials around Rosendale,
A Public Work, a number of his early sculptural works and one recent artwork. Presented
alongside these are related works by artist Ben Kinmont that negotiate the notion of withdrawal
and artistic contextualisation. Printed matter surrounding the work of the two artists will be
available to take away on the evening, as well as a limited edition re-print of Puusemp’s
publication – Rosendale, A Public Work, which will be available to purchase for €5.
