What if we got it wrong?

Opening Reception: Friday 16th September, 20165pm -10pm

What If We Got It Wrong? is a touring group exhibition of 15 Irish or Irish-based artists engaged in issues of climate change produced by the Centre Culturel Irlandais in the lead up to the international COP21 Climate Conference in Paris in December 2015. What If We Got It Wrong? - as the performance-poet Lemn Sissay asks us - in measuring progress by levels of industrialisation, expansion and accumulation? A focal point of the exhibition is the ice and waters of the Arctic, veritable barometers of the catastrophic effects of this ‘progress’, with a further important strand being geopolitics and its direct links to questions of energy and biodiversity. Video and multi-media installations, photography, works on paper and canvases bring the complexities and implications of climate change to the fore in works by Emily Robyn Archer, George Bolster, Mark Clare, Alice Clark, Blaise Drummond, Seamus Dunbar, John Gerrard, Andrew Kearney, Susan Leen, Ruth Le Gear, Christine Mackey, Anna Macleod, Selma Makela, Seamus Nolan, Softday and Brigitta Varadi. 

The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with essays by Nora Hickey M’Sichili (Curator), Frank McDonald, Darragh McKeon and Katherine Waugh. 

What if We Got it Wrong? toured during 2016 to F.E. McWilliam Gallery & Studio, Banbridge, N. Ireland; Wexford Arts Centre, WexfordLeitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton and finally will show at West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen opening on the 29 October.

LSC Gallery hours: Monday to Saturday 11am - 4pm.
