Roscommon Arts Centre presents new exhibition ‘With Other Matter, Part Two’

Roscommon Arts Centre presents the second iteration of the visual art exhibition ‘With Other Matter’ this summer as it opens in the centre’s gallery space on Friday July 15 and continues until August 27.

The artists included in this exhibition were selected through an open call that invited them to share artworks and processes inspired, influenced and involving ‘other matter’, plants and nature things.

For long periods of 2020 and 2021, social restrictions limited our interactions with other humans. Urged to stay at or close to home, our engagements with the things and the other matter that occupy these spaces intensified.

It has been widely documented that this period enabled a time to build new relationships with nature, plant species and the other living matter that surround us, allowing us closer observation and interaction with the often overlooked familiar things we live with and alongside. Through these two group exhibitions of With Other Matter in 2022 thirty-one artists will share their observations and interactions with other matter throughout 2020 and 2021.

‘With Other Matter, Part Two’ is curated by Naomi Draper and includes works by: Mark Beatty, Lydia Hickey, Jasmin Marker, Steven Maybury, Kate Mercer, Marielle MacLeman, Ina Olohan, Kate Oram, Blaine O’Donnell, Conor O’Grady, Annabel Potterton, David Pierce, Laura Skehan, Lorenzo Tonti, Amna Walayat, Conor Wickham and Matthew Wilson.

‘With Other Matter, Part Two’ opens in Roscommon Arts Centre at 6pm on Friday, July 15, with a drinks reception. All are welcome to attend.
