An exciting art exhibition by GMIT students is open for the next week, to finally showcase the work they have accomplished in the past two years.

The exhibition titled “Plan C: Whereabouts? , curated by graduate artists Ruby Wallis and Michaële Cutaya, presents the work of 21 students across multiple media such as painting, sculpture, textile, installation and film.

The event has been organised by graduates of 2020 and 2021, who are delighted to finally get the opportunity to share their work with their families, friends and the public.

“We have had to change plans so many times over the past 18 months. We are way past Plan B. So, Plan C – C for Covid, C for Contemporary, Creativity and Culture, but also C for Climate and the Changes facing us all”.

“We’ve had to find a place to stand and at times to take a stand. In the digital realm it was not always easy to know our whereabouts and that of our peers. Yet we needed shelter.”

“Many works in the exhibition respond to the material everyday objects and domestic surroundings that have helped us along and re-invest their potentialities. Other works reach out beyond our screens to connect with the diversity of our conditions.”

Celine Curtin, Head of Department Creative Arts & Media, said “We are all thrilled to be able to open up our doors again to the public and welcome them in to see the wonderful creative works of our dynamic students.”

The art exhibition will be open from Saturday 11 to Friday 17 September at the GMIT Cluain Mhuire in the School of Design and Creative Arts.
