Future Beauty? is an exhibition of everyday and extraordinary objects
Future Beauty? is a rare collision of materials, technologies and cultural influences, all linked by the experience of intelligent making.
Drawn from 26 studios and featuring both everyday and extraordinary objects, the show invites us to consider the current shape of craft, art and design in Ireland - and the ways in which the thinking and the objects from these makers may influence our understanding of these interconnected disciplines in the future.
All exhibitors are linked by a connection to Ireland, through birth, training or place of residence.
The focus on physical objects will, in some cases, be complemented by drawings, photographs, text and film where these add an essential dimension to the understanding of the work.
The exhibition is drawn from Irish Craft Portfolio: Critical Selection, a hardbound book being launched by the Crafts Council of Ireland at the exhibition opening.
