Illuminating Art & Ideas
Illuminations is a digital-visual exhibition space in the Departments of English and Media Studies at Maynooth University. Illuminations brings together work in the visual arts and in academia, celebrating innovation, ideas and creativity.
Situated in the Iontas building, the gallery space is built around eight LED screens, placed back-to-back in custom-designed cabinets. Supplemented by two display units which can exhibit physical artefacts, and a website which extends the gallery space, Illuminations aims to provide opportunities for education, investigation and enlightenment in and beyond the university.
Illuminations will promote work by artists, writers and researchers which stimulates ideas and provides new contexts for thinking and learning. Illuminations will provide a place where art, writing, criticism, research and teaching co-exist.
Illuminations welcomes ideas for exhibitions and collaborations. Contact us at:
