How the Image Echoes, Part 2

Thursday 30 January to Saturday 29 February

Art Gallery, Belfast Campus

The Ulster University Art Gallery, is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, 'How the Image Echoes, Part 2 ' an exhibition with and about painting.

Featuring works by Majella Clancy, Susan Connolly, Cherie Driver, Joy Gerrard, Christopher Hanlon, Paddy McCann, Dougal McKenzie and Louise Wallace.  This is Part 2 of a project devised by The Painting Research Group at Belfast School of Art, and follows on from a different iteration of the exhibition and a symposium, held at PS² and The MAC in September 2019

The exhibition seeks to address the ways in which the artists’ work might be considered within our wider ‘image culture’ today. The digital world of the camera, the screen, social media and the internet have, in less than two decades, created immeasurable numbers of images across new platforms. The exhibition therefore seeks to raise the questions: What constitutes ‘an image’ when making art, and what, if anything, makes this different from the other multifarious ways of delivering images?

The Painting Research Group wishes to acknowledge and thank Feargal O’Malley and Cian Smyth for hosting Part 2 at the Ulster University Gallery.

Also, PS² for hosting Part 1 of the exhibition, The MAC for hosting the symposium, and for Strategic Support funding provided by the Research Institute
