MCAC is delighted to host ‘Re-Generation’, a group show by nationally and internationally known artists who are currently working on the ‘Regenerate’ artists’ residency project in collaboration with Craigavon Borough Council’s Arts Development Department.
The artists are placed in local areas in Craigavon, Banbridge, Armagh, Dungannon, Cookstown and South Tyrone. The ‘Regenerate’ project places artists within the community with the idea to encourage people to look at their locality in a different way and express their ideas and thoughts about making positive changes to their area. All of the artists participate in socially engaged artistic practice, they include Mike Hogg - Philip Napier (Carbon Designs), Peter Richards - Ian Charlesworth (Average Inc), Factotum, Paddy Bloomer - Nicky Keogh (Tattered Dandelions) and individuals Lesley Yendell, Yvonne Sullivan and Brian Maguire.
The exhibition will present current artwork as well as a description of the research and process each residency will take in each local area. This exhibition is supported by the Art of Regeneration Programme, through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland National Lottery Fund and the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.
