Blue Monday: A Group Exhibition at The Mart in Dublin, Ireland

Details and photos from the group show I participated in (and attended)! in Dublin, Ireland last week.
The Mart is "a visual arts organization based in Dublin. Our primary aim is to create a platform for New Media, Installation, Experimental Film and Performance artists to showcase their work."

Exhibition Opens on Blue Monday 20th January 2014 @ 6pm. 

Curatorial Statement by EL Putnam: Instead of using art as a means of amplifying the miseries of life, this exhibition seeks out the beautiful in the little moments of everyday life. Inspired by Arthur Schopenhauer’s notion that art provides relief from the incessant suffering of life, works included in this exhibit are meant to offer respite from an art scene obsessed with its own misery. Taking place during what some argue is the most miserable time of the year, this exhibition will showcase multi-media works that explore themes of beauty, happiness, serenity, and other expressions intending to provide relief from life’s hardships.

Runs 20th Jan – 2nd Feb. Open 2-6pm Daily.

Curated by El Putnam

Artists: Kajsa Bäckström, Liam Campbell, Mary Cooke, Derville Conroy, Justyna Gruszczyk, Anthony Kelly, Helen MacMahon, Rosalind Murray, Rime Otilla Qvale, EL Putnam, Sarah Rado, David Stalling.
