‘After An Act’

Susan Connolly, Deb Covell, Brian Fay and Jo McGonigal.

26th May 2018 – 14th July 2018

The Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to present ‘After an Act’ an exhibition featuring works by: Susan Connolly; Deb Covell; Brian Fay and Jo McGonigal.

The exhibition launches with a public reception on Saturday 26th May from 1.00pm – 3.00pm and continues until Saturday 14th July 2018. We look forward to you joining us at the reception.

Featuring four artists whose process is inherent to their practice, ‘After An Act’ questions when an art work is truly completed. Perhaps it is an exchange between viewer and work that completion is found, though this itself posits the suggestion that it is only when the work is being actively looked at that it is in a state of completion.

It has become customary to look at performance art and question whether the art can only exist in the ephemeral moment and if it becomes something else in the recording or documenting. ‘After An Act’ suggests that these questions are equally pertinent to any works.

To complement the exhibition, there will be a selection of workshops where participants are encouraged to question openly what they are seeing and how their own personalities, pasts and attitudes can affect their viewing of art. These will include family workshops and written response sessions led by artist Dr. Colin Darke. Further details will be published on the gallery website and social media pages.
