Saturday 28 August 2010 until Sunday 12 September 2010


Working in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, video and photography, 11 artists chosen for inclusion in the exhibition have responsed to the title of the show with a range of interpretations that are critical, personal and humorous. The resulting pieces comment on a term which is loaded in the context of the island of Ireland’s recent and current history, and its relationship with the UK and Europe, as well as taking a more ambiguous and international approach to the idea of place and life on the fringe. 

Mainland is guest-curated by 126 Gallery.
