Second-level exhibition project
The Second-level Exhibition Project invites second level students to visit an exhibition at Uillinn and develop a project back in the classroom inspired by the exhibition and in response to a given brief. Artwork created as part of this project is then exhibited at Uillinn alongside work from other schools. Each year the project is based on a specific exhibition.
2016/17's exhibition project was based on the exhibition Et si on s'était trompé? / What If We Got it Wrong? , a group exhibition that took place in Autumn 2016 . The theme of the project was What If? After a visit to the exhibition students were challenged to create work that explored potential futures. The artwork was shown in an exhibition in the stairwell gallery at Uillinn from 11 February - 11 March 2017.
2017/18's project will be based on the exhibition David Seeger: 80: Moving Still, a survey exhibition of work by David Seeger a pioneer in contemporary ceramic art, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The exhibition opens from Saturday 4 November 2017. Second Level Schools wishing to participate will need to register for the project and book a date for a tour. They will then go on to develop their own work in response to the programme for exhibition during 2018. There is a fee of €3 per student to participate in the project.
