09.11 – “of de Blacam and Meagher” Belfast

“of de Blacam and Meagher” exhibition will be open to the public at the Ormeau Baths Gallery Belfast from 8th September 2011 to 8th October 2011.

The exhibition concept takes the form of a book unbound, containing volumes of drawing and photographic reproductions from the archives, contemporary photography and readings of the work with commentaries. The commentaries come from a cross-generational collective, who share an encounter with the architecture of de Blacam and Meagher. Their commentaries offer a contemporary and critical view of the practice and its positioning in the wider context of Irish architecture. Two short films by Ruán Magan, one about the installation in Venice, and the other with interviews from the commissioner and curators, will also be displayed during the exhibition.

“of de Blacam and Meagher” represented Ireland at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition 2010 in Venice, Italy.
