Artwork title switch

switch is an exciting new initiative which provides an accessible alternative viewing platform for contemporary visual art. In its inaugural year eight art works (lens based media) were shown simultaneously in various locations in the Nenagh town centre every evening during the last week of October, from 5pm to midnight. Utilising the light of the back-projected image and the onset of the dark evenings, switch provides an accessible alternative viewing platform for visual art.

Featuring works by artists from Tipperary, Cork, London, Glasgow and Gothenburg, switch is an event with an international focus, which showed and aims to show a range of approaches to working with lens based and digital media.

The event itself is accompanied by a publication and a website. The project also features a piece of writing by artist Fiona Woods on the concept of switch which can be downloaded here. For further information please visit http://www.s-w-i-t-c-h.org


A website and a publication were produced.
