Event description
Artist Lucy McKenzie takes part in an online conversation with Curator Pádraic E. Moore on the occasion of her solo exhibition, Tour Donas.

About this event

Featuring paintings, sculptures and elements of décor, this exhibition highlights the heterogeneity of McKenzie's practice. Weaving together fragments of art historical narratives with topical contemporary subjects, Tour Donas explores appropriation, authorship and the hierarchies between art forms.

A touchstone for this project is the Belgian avantgarde artist, Marthe Donas, (1885-1967) who spent two years in Dublin from 1914, studying at the cooperative stained-glass studio, An Túr Gloine; The Cubist vocabulary Donas developed is comparable to that of Irish artists Evie Hone and Mainie Jellett. Another key reference explored is De Ooievaar (Villa Stork), a listed Modernist building in Ostend, circa 1935, which McKenzie purchased in 2013 and is now carefully restoring as a home where the varying strands of her multidisciplinary practice can unite.

This pre-recorded conversation includes a live online introduction, followed by a Q&A with Pádraic E. Moore and Lucy McKenzie.

This is a live online Zoom event, booking essential.
