The exhibition was first presented at VUE 2017, Ireland's National Contemporary Art Fair, which took place at the RHA Gallery, Dublin 2 from the 2nd of November to the 5th of November 2017. It received a lot of attention from the numerous visitors to the fair that weekend.

If you were not able to attend the fair, do not miss this second edition of '2° C' which includes more works and which will be complemented by workshops and seminars in collaboration with the artists and the EPA at the gallery in Januray and February 2018.


"Olivier Cornet has a knack for curating good thematic shows, allowing artists to affiliate their work to a subject – in this case climate change – without distorting their customary practices. Here he elicits thoughtful, nuanced responses from a number of fine artists including Jordi Fornies, Claire Halpin, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Yanny Petters, Freda Rupp, Aisling Conroy, Vicky Smith and more."

Following our WHAT on EARTH has ART got to Do with CLIMATE CHANGE? panel discussion at the gallery on 7th March, a talk in which he participated as a guest, the author, journalist, lecturer and cultural/environmental tour guide Paddy Woodworth reviewed the exhibition in the Outdoors section of the Irish Times' Weekend Review (page 7, Saturday 17 March 2018). The article was titled What has art to do with climate change?

The panel discussion at the gallery was filmed by the very talented Mike Coyne. You can watch it on YouTube or on our FaceBook page.

The exhibition is avalable for touring in other venues in Ireland and abroad. Please contact us at info@oliviercornetgallery.com for more details.
