In a celebration of Dublin’s growing and diversifying street art culture, The MART, in collaboration with curator Gearoid O’Dea, bring us Landmarked.
This new exhibition focuses on the idea that landmarks can be created in the urban environment through the work of the street artist.
Running from Thursday 21st until Sunday 31st of August, Landmarked aims to make note of, present, and support how, though there is presently little official investment being made into the aesthetic life of Dublin, our artists continue to breathe life into public spaces through commissioned and non-commissioned works in the public sphere.
The aim here is a vibrant exhibition that maintains a level of inclusiveness with its audience, through music and workshop events (including a mini-jam, where artists will paint the back area of the gallery alongside live DJs), and by reaching out to members of Dublin’s street art scene – all aims which gel with the aims of the exhibition space, The MART, which is a not-for-profit organisation whose main aim is to provide a platform for new media and art. Here, they have given the space for Landmarked to present an immersive experience – with a gallery whose walls are covered top-to-bottom with works.
