We are delighted to announce that Together Now: The Engagement Project is back for its third installment at The F.E. McWilliam Gallery, Banbridge, Co. Down in Northern Ireland. Where it will be opened by Catherine Marshall on Saturday 23rd November 2.30pm -4.30pm. The exhibition will continue until 1st February 2020.
Together Now is a large group exhibition of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture and film by artists from the Kilkenny Collective for Arts Talent (KCAT), in Callan, Co. Kilkenny and artists from very different practice contexts from all over Ireland, who have been working together in residencies and other forms of engagement since 2014. Curated by Catherine Marshall, and following a symposium at KCAT in Callan at the end of 2018, this exhibition, drawing on the work of the 26 artists, is touring to venues across Ireland.
The work on show has been made as a result of collaborations and conversations between the artists from KCAT and artists who prioritise social engagement, performance, installation and a variety of media from film and video to very un-traditional interpretations of traditional media such as painting and sculpture.
Opened in June 2019 at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, Together Now next travelled to the OPW galleries at Farmleigh before arriving at the F.E. McWilliam Gallery in Banbridge. In 2020 the exhibition will tour to the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar, Ballinglen Art Foundation and Ballina Arts Centre in Co. Mayo before finishing back in Callan, Co. Kilkenny.
