Curiosity Cabinet Student Competition exhibition at 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2.
23rd July–16th Sept 2009
Earlier this year, third-level fine-art students from across the country were invited to submit proposals for an artwork, designed specifically to be displayed in the Curiosity Cabinet. The Curiosity Cabinet is an alternative exhibition 'venue', it is essentially a display box, on a busy pedestrian thoroughfare, located beside the entrance to the Black Church Print Studio, at 4 Temple Bar. This is a great opportunity for Students to showcase their work to a wide audience.
Three successful artists including two NCAD students: Clare Breen and Thomas Lawton and IADT Student: Lynda Reynolds are the 2009 winners of this competition. Each winner will have the opportunity to use the studio facilities for a month to work on their project after which, each will be given a 2.5 weeks exhibition slot in the Curiosity Cabinet. All three winners will receive a prize bursary of €250 at the reception launch on the 23rd July in the Original Print Gallery.
