McCullough Mulvin Orange is a site-specific art project taking place across five venues in central Dublin in September to October 2017. The exhibition features a series of new works by artist Mark Orange specially made for the project, each produced in collaboration with architect Niall McCullough of the Dublin architectural practice McCullough Mulvin.
The works, in audio and video, are being presented at some of the key Dublin buildings designed by McCullough Mulvin over the past 20 years, each of the venues hosting one work, installed in the context of the building and its everyday usage. Venues include Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, the Long Room Hub and Ussher Library, Trinity College, and the Irish Architecture Foundation, Bachelors Walk.
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to present Interview with NIXLL MCXULXOUGH, an installation with a 15 minute audio piece that will be on show in our atrium space for the duration of the project. The work plays on the form of a radio documentary, taking as its starting point an interview between the artist and Niall McCullough recorded at the building in May this year. The TBG+S building, when it reopened in 1994, was one of McCullough Mulvin Architects’ first major completed projects.
The artist will conduct a walking tour of all of the McCullough Mulvin Orange works and venues on Saturday 23 September, leaving Temple Bar Gallery + Studios atrium space at 2:30pm.
Following the walking tour, there will be an exhibition reception for the project, open to all, 5-7pm, Saturday 23 September, in the Atrium.
McCullough Mulvin Orange is generously supported by project awards from the Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council, and will be accompanied by the publication of a free map, with an essay by Jill Stoner, that will be available at all of the participating venues.
