Joy Gerrard: works for public spaces

LSE Arts Talking Pictures lunchtime lecture series

Joy Gerrard will present a number of connected projects for Gallery and Public spaces conceived during the last 5 years.

Joy Gerrard is a Dublin born artist, currently based in London. Since 2003 she has completed five major public commissions in Ireland and the UK and is currently working on a significant sculptural commission for the London School of Economics, curated by the Contemporary Art Society, to be installed in the New Academic Building this Autumn.

Crowds, and the politics of congregation have formed an ongoing thematic focus in gallery work. In imaging the crowd both figuratively and abstractly she questions the limitations of power and the transformative potential of mass gatherings and multitudes. Gerrard received funding form the Irish Arts Council and Dublin Corporation to complete an MPhil. research project at the RCA, London in 2007 and was short-listed for the AIB Award; Ireland’s most prestigious art prize in 2008. Recent group exhibitions include the Great Exhibition at the Royal College of Art, London, Ubu Gallery, Glasgow in 2007, and Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin in 2008.
