CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery is delighted to be part of Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship, which takes place across ten Cork City venues this September and October.

From 9 September – 29 October a diverse range of artwork will free-wheel across ten city venues, with subject matter ranging from a Beetle Circus, to television personalities Miriam O’Callaghan and Gay Byrne, buildings, love stories, machines, places, patterns large and small.

Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship will showcase the artwork of over sixty artists working in supported studio settings, both nationally and internationally. The exhibition will include a screening programme featuring animations, artist profiles, and more.

This exhibition will delight visitors, while seeking to prompt a real dialogue around creativity, ability and the active role that the arts can play within our communities. It is provocative, humorous and confident. The artwork demonstrates a mastery of materials and technique that undermines easy assumptions.

Artists and organisations presenting work will be involved in public engagement events, tours and workshops with the opportunity for schools, community groups, and any members of the public to get involved. For updates see: www.perceptions2016.com, www.crawfordartgallery.ie, www.ccad-research.org/gallery.

A symposium investigating our understanding of citizenship within the unique context of the Perceptions 2016 exhibition will be held on October 25 and 26. Details of full programme and for registration: www.perceptions2016.com
