dubh - dialogues in black
American Irish Historical Society, New York, USA 2011
The color black has long held a fascination in art, craft and design. The exhibition dubh – dialogues in black looks at black as both a physical and an emotional starting point for a group of Irish and American artist’s, craftspeople and designers. Pairing people from across a range of disciplines ranging from architecture, ceramics, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, painting, photography, textiles and wood this exhibition features work from the most interesting creative voices from Ireland in dialogue with their American peers. Under the creative direction of curator Brian Kennedy this exhibition will offer an insight into the studio practice of these artists and their common concerns, a simple starting point with a complex outcome.
