A Glucksman project for Cork Midsummer

In venturing outside after a period of confinement and isolation, we take notice of our surroundings in different ways. We become aware of sights and smells, the vibrancy of colours and the play of light, and observe what was once familiar with a reinvigorated sense of appreciation. We learn to see the everyday in a new light, with fresh eyes and an renewed attention to detail.

New Light is an exhibition of 8 different poster-based artworks presented in a series of exploratory walks across the public spheres of Cork city. Each walk will feature the 8 artworks presented on billboard sites enabling safe social distance viewing and an unfolding exploration of the project from 10 - 24 June 2020.
