NCAD Gallery presents the Cé leis é? exhibition talk
Cé leis é? and Systems Aesthetics hosted by Francis Halsall.
Friday 9th January 2015, 4pm, Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre, NCAD.
Francis Halsall will host a discussion of NCAD Gallery’s current exhibition, Cé leis é? in terms of systems aesthetics and his collaborative work with multidisciplinary artist Kelley O’Brien and forthcoming workshop in the Philippines. The talk hopes to create a dialectical response to questions of environmentalism, dematerialisation and contemporary practice within the specific environment of NCAD.
Cé leis é? exhibits the work of seven interdisciplinary artists currently studying at the National College of Art and Design. Artists include Alanna Blake, Lucy Bowen, Jenny Drea, Julia Dubsky, Octavian Fitzherbert, Grainne O’Carroll and Sean O’Riordan. Through a collaborative process, this exhibition of interventions, documentations, performances and experiments by the artists respond to the challenges facing the Irish coast as found by Coastwatch Europe’s 2014 survey. The exhibition marks the launch of Irish NGO Coastwatch Europe’s annual survey; which examines climate change, coastal erosion, endangered sea species and pollution.

Cé leis é? is open 1-5pm, Thursday 18th December 2014 – Friday 9th January 2015. Admission is free.
