Elaine Crowe | Sophie Gough | Hue Hale | Joseph Nix | Kate O’Shea

Opening Friday 2nd December 6.30pm


126 Artist-Run Gallery is pleased to announce after a thoroughly successful year the final show of 2016 ‘We Are Drifters…’, an exhibition by emerging artists, Elaine Crowe, Sophie Gough, Hue Hale, Joseph Nix and Kate O’Shea. The exhibition is the result of the gallery’s 2016 curatorial internship programme.
“We are drifters amongst spaces where the madness of things has no limit.”
[Thomas Ligotti]

Through the media of sculpture, video, photography and printmaking these artists responded to Thomas Ligotti’s words and the climate that surrounds them currently. As recent graduates the exhibiting artists find themselves on the threshold between the institution of art education and the current broader world of personal and professional practice. This exhibition will be an exploration of the limits as well as possibilities of this time for each of the artists as they observe mental as well as physical structures and the world around them.

‘We Are Drifters…’ is a co-curated exhibition by the 126 Interns, Danny Carter, Louise Maher, Rita McMahon, Seán O’Riordan, Connor Robertson and Emma Zukovic opening on Friday the 2nd of December 2016. Everyone at 126 Gallery warmly welcomes you to come and take part in the festivities. There will be some wonderful artwork by emerging artists from around the country and as always some refreshments for you to enjoy on the opening evening.
