VISUAL Carlow are delighted to present Elemental - a Superprojects exhibition. Aimed especially at children aged 4-12, this exhibition invites children and people of all ages to encounter contemporary art through touch and movement, as well as sight.
Caoimhe Kilfeather, Karl Burke and Anne Bradley have transformed the galleries with their interactive, tactile sculptures and installations that explore scale, texture, space and light. Cleo Fagan is the founder and curator of Superprojects – an initiative for young audiences that generates possibilities for creative encounters with contemporary art and artists. Superprojects’ work includes school-based workshop and artist-residency programmes, Per Cent for Art commissions, festival events and child-centred exhibition programmes that open up the richness of national and international contemporary art practice to child participants; whilst actively fostering their development as meaning-makers and artists.
Associated Event: Professor in the Philosophy of Education Aislinn O’Donnell and Education Curator Katy Fitzpatrick will bring their exciting Art & Philosophy programme to VISUAL, hosting a philosophy event for children as part of an ongoing project with Superprojects.
