AN exhibition of work by students in the Limerick School of Art and Design is to open next week in the Sailors’ Home on O’Curry Street in the city.

The bi-annual ‘REV’ exhibition, curated by Aoife Tunney and featuring the work of 13 Masters of Arts in Art and Design Education students in LSAD, will be opened by former councillor and teacher Tom Shortt at 7.30pm next Wednesday, October 28.

Ms Tunney, an independent curator based in Dublin is no stranger to Limerick having been EVA+ International assistant curator in 2012. The exhibition she has curated features a diverse range of practices including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, digital media, and augmented reality installation.

The exhibition has been coordinated by the programme team of Shelagh Honan, Fiona O’Dwyer and programme leader Maria Finucane.

Ms Finucane said of the MA: “It’s a programme of three key areas: being involved in a community of peers to enhance professional development; re-engaging with art and design practice to infuse and develop curriculum in schools and using research to investigate particular practices within their own educational settings”.

The exhibition runs until October 31.
