Oh Everywhere There’s Gladness

Exhibition by CIT CCAD Alumni Meave Lynch & Michael Cleary

13-28 January / Lord Mayor’s Pavilion in Fitzgerald Park, Cork City

CURATED BY CIT CCAD Alumni ALISON FOGARTY
SAMPLE-STUDIOS' 2016/2017 AWARDED CURATOR IN RESIDENCE


The exhibition's location is the Lord Mayor’s Pavilion in Fitzgerald Park which was purpose built in 1903 for one of the four International Exhibitions held in Cork City between the years 1852 and 1903.

Oh Everywhere There’s Gladness aims to pay homage to those International Exhibitions through two artists contemporary interpretations.

Maeve Lynch’s invisible rebuilding of the various pavilions by mapping soundscapes throughout the park for the duration of the exhibition allows the old fairs to be re-imagined in the digital age.

Michael Cleary’s re-purposing of found industrial materials questions their use or need in today’s society contrasting their absolute necessity throughout the Industrial revolution of the 1800s.
