”Through a documentation of various roads and landscapes, Fox has produced a socially engaged exhibition, one being greatly influenced by the UK’s recent decision to leave the EU. He is looking at how ‘Brexit’ will impact border communities in Ireland. Producing paintings that focus on the day to day logistical implications of ‘Brexit’ on small Irish boarder communities and using this as a lens to view the bigger issue of what this means for the island of Ireland at large, highlighting the uncertainty that lies ahead.”

The AGA Group:
In addition to the group of artists represented, the Olivier Cornet Gallery also works with another group of artists, usually artists Olivier has met and engaged with at the Speed Curating Event, organised by Visual Artists Ireland (VAI) as part of their annual GetTogether day, in Belfast or at IMMA.
”This group of artists are recent graduates, artists at the start of their career, or emerging or established artists we work with for special projects. Other galleries tend to refer to these artists as ‘project’ artists. At the Olivier Cornet Gallery, they are members of the ‘AGA group’ or ‘Associate Gallery Artists’,”

‘There is much yet to be done‘, is a series of works depicting some of the ‘barriers’ such as peace walls and gates which are still maintained within the North of Ireland. The exhibition was created in light of the 2016 centenary year commemorations. It is a focus on the north of Ireland and of how this past century has affected the current social and political climate, with the aim of highlighting that although the ambitions of the 1916 proclamation deserve celebration and remembrance, that they lie unfulfilled within the North.
This exhibition is currently on show and runs until the 7th of December. For more information please visit the gallery’s website below;

Collaborations 13 @Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin
Collaborations was born in 2012 and set out to showcase new work, new artists & an atmosphere that supports & encourages collaboration across different disciplines.We wanted to encourage artists, performers, theatre makers to start something, to take a leap into that project that has been in their heads for the last few months, to put pen to paper or chats to tea or chords to music or print to frame and make it happen. Collaborations provides a platform for work that is in development. We endeavour to provide a safe environment with feedback and encouragement to make new work within the Arts.
Collaborations 2014 wants to keep growing, we want to introduce more, more companies, more artists, more work. We want to included music this year, we want to encourage youth theatres to work together & we want to expand our exhibition space/allocation.
is an exciting new initiative by Offaly County Council in association with The Arts council of Ireland, aimed at highlighting international contemporary arts practice in preparation for the opening of Tullamore Community Arts Centre.
Foundation 13 is a platform for new and innovative ideas and art works. Rather than focusing on two dimensional or traditional wall hung work Foundation 13 will encompass video, sculpture, installation, multimedia, performance, light and sound and will occupy multiple spaces in Tullamore town.
With the increasing number of empty commercial units all over Ireland artists and their work have become progressively visible on high streets and other designated commercial areas. Now occupying otherwise unused spaces and often working more and more with communities contemporary arts practice has evolved. Pop-up Art spaces are now thriving amidst the saturation of advertisements and the bombarding commerce of town and city centres, offering the public a window into an alternative use of shared public space.
Foundation 13 encourages public engagement, over our four week run we will be hosting workshops and talks with artists, curators, gallery owners and facilitators. We are also showcasing new theatre works, art house cinema events and collaborative based art projects.
Visual Art Billboard project in East Belfast, hosted by Creative Exchange Artist Studios.
‘Doig at The Mac –Belfast’ is taken from a series of paintings by Fox that document gallery interiors. This piece is a painting of Peter Doig’s show, held locally at the MAC gallery Belfast back in November 2012. Curated by Hugh Mulholland, Fox describes the event as ground breaking for contemporary art and painting within Northern Ireland.
The painting itself is clean and cool, with the pinks, greens and oranges of the exhibited paintings emphasised against the polished grey of the floor and strong whites of the walls and strip lighting. There are no members of the public milling about, nor any staff, the attention is on the space, the architecture, and the artwork at rest.
