Exhibition Launch: A Great Public Meeting – Lauren Conway

In June this year Lauren Conway’s graduate exhibition A Great Public  Meeting launched at the IADT On Show website. Conway’s drawing practice explores empty educational spaces that  question and challenge aspirational promises put forward by the state  through formal education. Through the use of archival materials,  documentation from site visits, and found images from her teenage years,  Conway explores tensions between the empty school sites and the dense,  awkward dancefloors of teenage discos.

View Conway’s work at IADT On Show.

Her next body of work currently in  production concerns themes of state school curriculums as a vessel for  political policy.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
