Locale 3


24th Oct – 3rd Nov | A4 Sounds Gallery
A4 Members’ Show 2019


Locale #3 is the third in a series of exhibitions responding to the local area and home of A4 sounds. With this show the conversation between our members, our neighbours and the local area continues as we explore and reflect on the shared experience of our city.

Locale #3 began, like the previous years’ shows, with a walking tour of the surrounding area. Lead by Laura McQuaid, our neighbour and member of The Royal Canal Clean Up Group. The tour took our members up the Whitworth Road along the Royal Canal, through Glengariff Parade, down Royal Canal Bank and eventually to the depot at Broadstone. Along the way we spoke about the canal’s functional history and relationship to a variety of communities in the area past and present.

Locale #3 sees our members continue to convey their experiences of Dublin as a built environment in our largest iteration of Locale to date. Through their respective mediums of video games, mixed media, photography, film, moving image, paint, illustration, sculptural installations and performance they reconcile with a number of political, social, ecological and interpersonal themes that are to them salient elements of the urban landscape of our city.
