VISUAL ART: FOYER 2nd Oct 2016 - Tue 3rd Jan 2017
The Cabinet of Wonders is an ongoing visual art project at the Linenhall Arts Centre,
Castlebar, Co. Mayo. It is now in it's second iteration.
From the time of the Renaissance, Cabinets of Curiosities (also known as Kunstkabinetten or Wunderkammern), were collections of unusual objects which presented the rich and often curious diversity of the natural world and beyond. Taking this as its inspiration, The Cabinet of Wonders #2 has been unveiled at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar. This new, second exhibition features works by Saidhbhín Gibson, Margaret McDonnell, Cecilia Moore, Peter Nash, Jane O’Sullivan and Verona Stellet.
