While in Beijing I got to spend some time in the 798 Art District. It is a great place for art lovers to visit. Located in Dashanzi, Chaoyang District of Beijing, it houses a thriving artistic community. I went to an amazing William Kentridge exhibition at The Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, called Notes Towards a Model Opera.
I spent the month of August in China, spending most of the time in Beijing hanging out with my brother and his girlfriend who live there. I also travelled to Shanghai and Chengdu. I had the most amazing time. One of the highlights was getting to see Ai Weiwei’s first solo exhibition in Beijing. Ai Weiwei is one of my favourite artists, I have watched his movies, followed his art career as well as his work as an activist. It was very overwhelming seeing his work in person for the first time at the Tang Contemporary Art Center in the 798 District of Beijing.
Very excited to be exhibiting at the 2015 RDS Student Art Awards Exhibition at the RDS Concert Hall Tuesday 28th to Friday 31st of July from 10am to 5pm. It’s free entry and open to the public… So please call in for a look!
Last week I had the great opportunity to go see the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum, London.
Savage Beauty is an exhibition celebrating the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times, Alexander McQueen: it is the first and largest retrospective of McQueen’s work to be presented in Europe.
I have been a huge fan of McQueen’s from a young age, therefore I felt very privileged to get to see his creations in person. It was so overwhelming and inspiring. It was AMAZing. I would highly recommend a visit, but remember to book in advance.
The day has finally arrived….. The opening of my degree show exhibition!
I’m busy putting the final touches to my work.
The opening is from 4pm – 7pm this evening, followed by a day time opening tomorrow, Saturday the 30th, from 1pm – 4pm. The exhibition takes place at the Centre for Creative Arts and Media (GMIT), Monivea Rd, Galway. It will feature work from a variety of disciplines; Textiles, Print, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Paint.
I’m very excited and nervous to show case my work. Fingers crossed all goes well!
