GUM Collective screens their self-made documentary focusing on what it means to be part of an emerging artist collective in Ireland.
Friday 27th February | 6pm | Studio 6
GUM is a collective of thirteen artists currently studying Fine Art Print at the National College of Art and Design. Originating from printmaking, their members and skill set have evolved beyond print into sculpture, assemblage, video, performance, animation and paint, whilst maintaining the community ethos and sensibilities associated with printmaking.
For this event, GUM screens their self-made documentary focusing on what it means to be part of an emerging artist collective in Ireland. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session. The documentary follows the group through preparations for their exhibition Traces which took place in The Library Project last November. This spans from working in their studio and workshop to discussing individual projects and finally to the opening night of the show.
The GUM Collective are: Aaron Burns, Aaron Smyth, Alex deRoeck, Aimee Gallagher, Ciara O'Brien, Ciaran Gallen, Clare Marie Ryan, Eoin O'Reily, Luke O'Meara, Melissa Ellis, Sadbh O'Brien, Sofya Mikhaylova and Stephen Lau.
