And This Too | Group Exhibition at Platform Arts, Belfast

2 to 25 November
Opening reception Thursday 2 November, 6pm for Late Night Art Belfast.

Exhibiting Artists: Sean Campbell, Jill Gibbon , Brendan Jamison, Ciaran Magill, Mark Revels, Gail Ritchie, David Turner

And This Too features seven artists whose work explores, represents or challenges our understanding of contemporary conflict. Their work reflects the diverse and complex issues which surround responses to conflict and includes drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. Much of this work is being exhibited for the first time in Belfast. The exhibition highlights the important role which artists play in offering alternative viewpoints of conflict. Art can change our perceptions or increase our understanding of events. This is crucial given the current state of heightened security in which we find ourselves.

Panel Discussion, open to everyone:
Friday 3 November 2 – 4pm;
Chaired by Fiona NΓ­ Mhaoilir, Artist/PhD researcher (Post Troubles Art Production in the North of Ireland)
Speakers: Dr. Jill Gibbon, Leeds Beckett University; Dr Des O’Rawe, Queen’s University Belfast; Brendan Jamison; Gail Ritchie.
All of the participating artists will be in attendance.

Friday 3 November 2-4pm Artist Talks.
An opportunity to join artists, creatives and academics in a lively and wide ranging conversation about how their work explores, challenges, represents or questions our understanding of contemporary conflict.
