Date: Thursday 2 June 2016, 1pm
Venue: darc space, 26 Great George’s Street, Dublin 1
Dorothy Smith will provide an insight into her current exhibition Made and Considered. In his introduction to the exhibition, Denis Byrne, architect and co-founder darc space said: ‘Dorothy Smith is an artist who works back from this “what we actually see” in order to ask questions of and about the forces active in city creation. Her work interrogates and critiques the city while also delighting in the sudden beauty of an objet (or scène) trouvé. These moments of intensity, or urban epiphanies, are captured – generally separated from context – by her unsentimental eye and rendered with superb technique.’
An artist based in Phibsborough, Dorothy Smith is also a community activist and member of Phizzfest. She was one of the initiators of the recent Phizzfest Design Review, led by the RIAI. Dorothy will be joined in the lunchtime conversation by architect Ralph Bingham of MOLA who will discuss the Phizzfest Design Review, which will go on public display in Phibsborough and darc space later in June.
The conversation will be chaired by editor and writer Sandra O’Connell, a founding board member of darc space.
