TBG+S Writer 2016: Claire-Louise Bennett - Essay #3 ‘In Progress’

07 December 2016

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to announce the fourth in the series of commissioned essays by author Claire-Louise Bennett written in response to each programmed exhibition at TBG+S. The essays are available online and in the gallery.

The third essay in the series responds to the solo exhibition Exquisite Tempo Sector by Barbara Knezevic. This exhibition is about the exposure of artworks and matter; to light, viewing, time, human activity and to each other. It is a reflection on the life span of things, and what remains when they seem to be gone. Exquisite Tempo Sector continues until Saturday 28 January 2017.
