Curatorial Committee

Living Canvas offers a unique and spectacular platform to introduce the public to leading and emerging artists working in the visual and digital field. At the same time, it has the potential to showcase the work of these artists to the world. The screen puts art in the public domain on a scale not previously encountered in Ireland. Programming is ongoing and is overseen by the Curatorial Committee:

• Patrick Murphy (Chair), Director, Royal Hibernian Academy
• Sheena Barrett, Curator, LAB Gallery, Dublin City Council
• Simon O'Connor, Director, Museum of Literature Ireland, MoLI
• Daniel Staines, Creative Director, Algorithm

New projects and initiatives are always in development, so check back soon for more.
