Join us on Tuesday 16 August at 1pm in the Liffey Corner Room, CHQ, for a conversation around seagulls and port scenes, protest and printmaking. Dublin-based artists Julie Merriman and Augustine O’Donoghue will discuss their creative commissions for the Ports, Past and Present project, on show at the Liffey Corner in the CHQ Building through Heritage Week.
Julie will explain her use of obsolete office copying materials in her work, which draws on the history of ‘mark making’ in order to create striking modern prints. Augustine will take us through the making of her sound installation on the ecological plight of herring gulls in the Dublin area, whose habitats have been built over or destroyed by humans.
This is just one of the events being held throughout Heritage Week in Dublin, including an exhibition in EPIC Museum and an exhibition launch on Tuesday 16 August.
