Abstraction- more or less

Students traveling to Dublin for the painting symposium should arrive at NCAD, Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre, for 10am.

A couple of interesting links to whet your appetites:
Merlin James exhibition currently at Douglas Hyde Gallery:

And slightly less related to the day's events, but with interesting links to the notion of abstraction/ figuration: a fantastic show towards the end of last year of Roberto Matta-Echaurren works and concepts at the Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid (Matta had formed a strong friendship with Marcel Duchamp, despite the latter's abandonment of painting by that stage.)

Matta/ Fiery Landscape/ 1940
