Mel Brimfield: Quantum Foam
6 Dec 2014 - 17 Jan 2015
Quantum Foam is a touring exhibition of work by UK artist Mel Brimfield, her first showing in the Republic of Ireland. Operating at the intersection of live art, theatre and film, Brimfield’s practice takes a skewed and tangled romp through the already vexed historiography of performance art, simultaneously revealing and inventing a rich history of collaboration between artists, dancers, theatre makers, political activists and comedians. Presented by Kinsale Arts Festival and curateed by former Director Marie McPartlin, the tour encompasses Wexford Arts Centre, Galway Arts Centre and The LAB, Dublin. Quantum Foam is a retrospective of the artist’s work, with each gallery presenting an original series of existing works.
