New Living Art IV

New Living Art IV

November 7th – Dec 8th
Opening Reception Thursday, November 7th at Steambox, 5 -7pm and Moxie Studios from 7 – 10pm

The Irish Museum of Contemporary Art [IMOCA] is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the fourth annual New Living Art exhibition on Thursday, November 7th, 2013.
In 1943, a group of artists rebelling at the closed, conservative, ‘tennis club’ institutions for art, decided to stand together and do something about it.  The Irish Exhibition of Living Art, which was created and thrust into being in that meeting, was not just a response to not being in ‘the club;’ it was arguably the incentive, or perhaps the incendiary, that sparked the atmosphere that allowed many or most of the opportunities available to Irish-based artists today- The Arts Council, Culture Ireland and the Percent For Art scheme, among others. IMOCA established the NLA exhibition in 2010 as a tribute to that vision and determination.

The curator selected for the NLA IV is Emmanuelle Marion, Co-Director of D.Ploy Dublin, and Curator Director of Bio.Space033, a multi-disciplinary creative space in Dublin. Marion has been working in Cultural policy and International arts management for almost 15 years both in Ireland and abroad. She based her curatorial approach to this exhibit around the theme, “Locked in, Locked Out,” in reference to the centenary anniversary of the Dublin Lock-out.

“The centenary of the Dublin Lock-Out is a unique opportunity to assess our social and political status quo, not only as a Nation, but also globally” says Marion. It also coincides with Ireland’s presidency of the EU- “That’s why we invited several international artists to join 30 Irish artists in exploring universal notions of identity, power and justice.”
The exhibit will once again span IMOCA’s two current affiliate art centres, Moxie Studios in D2 and Steambox in D8, with an opening reception at Steambox from 5pm – 7:00 and at Moxie from 7pm – 10pm.
NLA IV gallery hours are Tuesdays- Sundays 12 -5pm through December 8th.
IMOCA would like to give special thanks to our supporters, which include The Goethe Institute, The French Embassy, Camoens, D.Ploy Dublin, Inov8 Print & Design, Moxie Studios and Steambox.  image C. Rosaleen Breen

Introducing some of our participating International Artists:
Sara Maia is one of Portugal’s foremost artists. Her work has been described as a cross-over between Frida Kahlo, Hieronymus Bosch and Goya. Sara Maia will present a troubling site-specific installation created over 2 months in Dublin especially for the NLA. Sara Maia’s work is shown around the globe, most recently at the Gulbenkian Foundation and the Museo de la Republica in Lisbon, and at the Galerie Kuzcynski Paris next spring. Sara will teach masterclasses during the course of the exhibition.
Kevin Abosch Claiming roots in the USA, France & Ireland, the world- acclaimed photographer’s quest is to take celebrity portraiture to a whole new level. From the impressive collection ‘Faces of Ireland’ presented in Dublin airport to the ‘Faces of Tech’ showcased on Times Square, Abosch has been photographing citizens of many countries, activists, artists and even vegetables. For the NLA he will present his new series ‘Intimate Portraits of Killing Machines’.

Silent Moments (iadt) 26 April – 3 May

All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful: but the beauty is grim.

Christopher Morley

Soft-shelled, we armour ourselves with technology. We build human cities, our correlate to anthills and beehives. As a social species, like ants and bees, our well-being depends upon mutual aid, social networks, and culture adaptions – of which technology is manifested.

How cities shape consumption, promote health and equity, and nurture creative collaboration may determine the arc of the planet’s future. Urban management may be the ultimate multiplier, either minimizing poverty and supporting equitable cities or hastening the collapse of ecosystems. This may be especially true in small to medium cities, where most of the population growth will occur; these cities, however, will also face a dearth of skilled managers.

Ugly Beauty: Lee Malone

‘Ugly Beauty’ is a series of portraits of some of the main models in Ireland, depicting the raw emotion, and absence of pretence of strong modern women. There will be three head shots per model; the first, a stripped bare unveiling of natural beauty, without make-up;

the second, entitled Women Curse, will capture the ugly expression of emotion;

and thirdly, each model will react to a hand written word or emotion with which they closely identify.

This display of black and white images touches on the vulnerability of women whilst feeling ugly emotions, yet still depicts them as strong and competent individuals.

There will also be an audio-visual film on loop, which will show the models cursing in different tones and through different emotions.

The exhibition launches on the 16th on December, and will run for a week in the lead up to Christmas at Moxie Studios on Lad Lane.
