The 24th Annual Hunt Museum LSAD Painting project ‘Postcards from the Edge’ will take place on Monday 19th April and it runs until 30th May.
All LSAD 2nd Year students were required to create a body of research work and specific artworks that will be transformed and printed as a set of postcards that will exist virtually and in physical form.
This project provides the opportunity for painting students to actively engage and respond to the Hunt Museum’s important collection, which includes over 2,000 works of Art, including Picasso, Giacometti, Gauguin and Renoir as well as vitrines full of curious artefacts.
Each year a diverse range of ideas and concepts emerge from this collaborative process, not only regarding the actual objects and paintings on view but also the display methods used by the Hunt.
For this year’s exhibition, the brief was to interpret the collection under four important relevant contemporary issues and contexts based on the Hunt Museum collection: Black Lives Matter, Gender, Then Environment and Origins. The Online Exhibition will run on the Hunt Museum instagram account with exclusive content on the Hunt Museum TikTok. Follow the Hunt Museum accounts to know how you could acquire the student’s postcards.
Our online launch will be held on Thursday, 22nd April, 2021 at 7.30pm – just click the Zoom link to join.
There will be a music-video performance from a Limerick-based band named “SmlChxrch”, short talks with the students about their process and challenges, and a “behind the scenes” overview.
