Kerry Guinan Exhibition


Presenting the Cultural Quarter

‘Presenting the Cultural Quarter’ is an exhibition documenting a recent intervention into the Parnell Square Cultural Quarter by artist Kerry Guinan. Launched in 2013, the Parnell Square Square Cultural Quarter is a semi-private D.C.C. development which promises ‘renewal and growth’ in the area. In this exhibition the motives and implications of such a cultural strategy are subject to interrogation.

Guinan creates public interventions that challenge art’s complicity in neoliberal capitalism. Her work frustrates interpretation of fact from fiction by appropriating the aesthetics of institutional authority. She is the recent author of ‘The Impact and Instrumentalisation of Art in the Dublin Property Market’ and has developed a significant research practice in the intersections of art and property speculation.

Kerry Guinan is a recipient of the A4 Artist in Residence Programme 2017. The  programme was established to offer selected artists the time, space, and facilities needed to develop their professional practice in a supportive environment, while furthering the mission of our studio through projects that focus on social and political issues relevant to Dorset Street and surrounding areas.
