Black Church Emerging Curator Exhibition 2024

Every January, The Library Project art bookshop closes to accommodate an exhibition by Black Church Print Studio. Bookshop visitors can still browse and shop online at thelibraryproject.ie with free collections being facilitated and international postage available

The Library Project art bookshop will re-open fully on the 3rd February.

This year's Black Church Print Studio's exhibition Unlimiting the Edition runs 12th – 30th January and is curated by Ria Czerniak-LeBov, recipient of BCPS Emerging Curator Award 2024. The exhibition features selected BCPS and invited artists Ailbhe Barrett, Maya Brezing, Niamh Flanagan, Margot Galvin, Des Kenny and Grace Ryan. 

As contemporary print practices continue to expand beyond the boundaries of tradition, everything from the formal and material qualities of the medium, to the social and economic status of Print have become the subject of re-evaluation. In the practices of Ailbhe Barrett, Maya Brezing, Niamh Flanagan, Margot Galvin, Des Kenny and Grace Ryan, it is the concept of the limited edition itself that is being expanded. Divorced from the rarity value system that governs the formal edition, the matrix’s potential to iterate and generate ad infinitum becomes an exciting prospect, one that allows these printmakers to build and fragment, collage and extract, tell stories and challenge existing narratives. Across their practices, these artists explore a diverse range of themes and contemporary phenomena, in an equally diverse range of traditional techniques including etching, screenprint, paper-making and carborundum. What is visible throughout these works is a shared sensibility, one that acknowledges the complexities and contradictions of making art in unprecedented times. Climate crisis, gender identity, consumerism and the enduring, and all too human, search for a place to call home are thoughtfully and often, playfully explored through the hand-made, printed multiple.
