This is Not Architecture

Monday, 24th April 2017 - Wednesday, 21st June 2017

Architecture and the built environment is discussed and explained entirely through secondary representations- photography, film, drawing, books and TV. Paradoxically the built environment is meant to be experienced in real time and space but it is illustrated and explained through representations. Architects learn, imagine and conceive of the built environment through representation.

 This exhibition looks at how artists represent and discuss the built environment, what are the biases and limitations inherent in representing the real?

Highlanes Gallery and Droichead Arts Centre are delighted to present ‘This is not Architecture’, curated by Highlanes Gallery Director, Aoife Ruane.

The exhibition is generously sponsored by Murtaghs of Drogheda

The exhibition will be located at Droichead Arts Centre and Highlanes Gallery and continues until 21 June 2017.
