ART FEEDS… Video Tour of Exhibition

ART FEEDS…  Kildare Art Collective & Friends
McKenna Gallery, Riverbank Arts Centre
18th September – 24th October 2020

ART FEEDS… by Kildare Art Collective & Friends is a collaborative project developed as a platform to process and document our lives throughout these strange times, while creating an opportunity for communication, conversation and crossover between disciplines. 31 participating artists worked collaboratively exchanging ideas and working together using alternative methods of communication such as email, letter, carrier pigeon, phone calls, telepathy, video calls and text. The diverse work created during this project is an eclectic mix with interesting themes and details arising as we adjust to our new reality and navigate changes to how we work together.
