In the Making: Nebula brings together the work of 14 final year Art students in Pallas Projects

Works in the exhibition will range from painting, print, video, sculpture and installation with a particular emphasis on painting in the digital/photographic age, surface, artificiality and the human body, exploitation and the everyday.

A nebula, by definition alone, refers to an interstellar clustering of gases and materials that can, providing the right elements are in place, form new star systems. A nebula cloud draws in other forms of matter, snowballing to astronomical sizes and in so doing, facilitates the creation of light, matter and potentially, life. 

The works are involved in a shifting dialogue in relation to themselves individually and to the cluster as a whole. As uneasy objects hovering in a space, each has the possibility of drawing other works within its particular sphere of associations with the ultimate intention of creating a unique Nebula of seemingly disparate objects in orbit around the vacuum of contemporary art practice.  

Allan Kinsella Ciara Dempsey Craig Lawlor Aisling Boland Jago Moulton Paddy Sheehan Ciara Mc Donald Sophia Delavari Fiona Fitzpatrick Louise Mc Cormack Kian Benson-Bailes Jessica Crean James Butterworth Richard Lawlor stduents from the BA (Hons) in Art will be exhibiting. 

In the making presents a taste of the future. For three weeks in November 2015, Pallas Projects provides an exciting platform for emerging art practices, hosting three consecutive exhibitions of new work by degree year students from IADT’s BA in Art. Conceived as an experiment in learning through exhibition-making, the project has been developed with guidance from Gavin Murphy and assistance from post-graduate students on IADT’s Art & Research Collaboration MA. Each exhibition will provide an early-stage glimpse into the ideas, materials and techniques currently being researched and tested by the BA students and a valuable opportunity for them to extend their practices beyond the IADT studios. The three exhibitions that constitute In the making will offer a unique insight into dynamic thought processes unfolding through collaborative exhibition practice.

The three exhibition openings will take place from 6pm to 8pm, on Thursdays November 12, November 19 and November 26, 2015. 

Each exhibition will also be open to the public on Fridays, 12–6pm, and Saturdays, 12–2pm. (Please note the earlier Saturday closing time).
