Hunt 2010

Tuesday 4th May 2010 - Sunday 23rd May 2010
13th Annual Painting Exhibition 2010 Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT, at the Hunt Museum from Tuesday 4th May until 23rd.
 
This annual show comprises of artworks made by 2nd Year students from the Painting Department of the Limerick School of Art and Design, Limerick Institute of Technology, studying on the colleges Degree Programme.

The aim is to create circumstances where creativity can occur and this happens through the student’s response and engagement with the collection which includes works by Picasso, Gauguin and Renoir.

The Hunt Museums layout is unique in that it was created to mimic the atmosphere of a private house with artefacts from different periods placed alongside each other in different drawers and display cabinets.
Each year a diverse range of ideas and concepts emerge from this collaborative project.
This years exhibition explores ideas concerned with memory, history, humour, notions of architectural space, identity , location, light and text.

The student’s ability to embrace contemporary art practice is reflected in the variety of artworks on show which include photography, painting, sculptural works and alternative artworks.

What makes this show a dynamic and successful one is the way in which these young Artist give a sense of contemporary life to the historical by virtue of their individual often idiosyncratic ways of making Art works.
