Stranger Than Truth

Stranger Than Truth

Dublin 15 Heritage Primary Project

Fri 2 May - Sat 6 Sep 2014 First Floor Gallery

EXHIBITION DATES: 02 MAY–06 SEPT 2014 FIRST FLOOR GALLERY

During this 6 week project 3 local primary schools delved into local histories and explored real and imagined stories from our past with artists Gen Harden and Andrew Carson. The project encouraged an interest in our shared history, local heritage and looked into how history and stories are passed down through generations - sometimes the whole truth does not reach the present. With a focus on contemporary art practices, pupils worked with a variety of mediums including print, paint, collage and film.

The project ends with an exhibition in our First Floor Gallery, a celebration day and opening ceremony for pupils, families, artists and teachers on Friday 02 May at 6.30pm.
