THE ART PARK PRESENTS BARRY MCCALL
The Sebastian Guinness Gallery is proud to announce the launch of the ‘The Art
Park’. Located to the rear of the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) in Spencer Dock on Mayor Street Upper, The Art Park project has been created as a community, public art and recreational space for the purposes of a local, national and international contemporary visual arts programme.
Utilising the rear wall of the CCD, The Art Park screen will provide a blank
projection canvas for digital media, video art, animation, film, photography and
literature. The recreational space of this urban park will provide an additional
platform for outdoor sculpture, exhibitions and community initiatives.
The Sebastian Guinness Gallery will be responsible for the overall curation of
the arts programme, with both gallery and guest-curated events. Adjoining retail
units will be available as exhibition spaces for project related or individual
The Art Park’s initial project will showcase selected images from the recently
published book ‘Pho20graphy’ celebrating 20 years of the iconic fashion and
portrait photography of Barry McCall. This projection will take place from
Thursday 9th December until Monday 31st of January 2011 and runs
approximately 7 minutes long on a continuous loop.
‘Pho20graphy’ features many national and international names from the worlds
of arts, entertainment and sports. Gabriel Byrne, Imelda May,
Anna Friel, John Banville, Brian O’Driscoll, Saoirse Ronan, Stephen Rea,
Gavin Friday, Boyzone and David Norris are amongst many of the portraits featured.
Produced in partnership with Brown Thomas all the proceeds from this beautifully produced limited edition book of 300 images (€80) will go to the Irish Society for the Protection for Cruelty to Children (ISPCC). ‘Pho20graphy’ can be purchased from all Brown Thomas regional outlets and BT2.
