The exhibition is curated by Julia Moustacchi and features work by ten artists currently completing the IADT Masters in Art and Research Collaboration (ARC): Brenda Brady, Anishta Chooramun, Heather Cody, Penelope Collins, Collette Farnon, Lisa Freeman, Marie-Louise Halpenny, Marie Phelan, Dylan Ryan & Audrey Walshe.

Discussion and tour: The Ideal Exhibition, Saturday 18 January 2020, 3pm
How has the ideal space of the exhibition changed, for artists, curators and art audiences? Artists and curators have traditionally used models and drawings to plan and design exhibitions. In recent years, however, newer technologies of previsualisation (such as Sketchup) have become more widespread in art education and production. Curators and artists are also finding new ways to display artworks, exploring alternatives to conventional physical exhibition spaces. These developments will be explored by Bassam Al Sabah, Georgina Jackson and Marysia Wieckiewicz-Carroll in a conversation hosted by curator Julia Moustacchi and chaired by ARC co-director Maeve Connolly. The discussion will be followed by a tour of the exhibition Unassembled.
This event is free but places are limited.
Show running until Sunday 19th January.
ARC and the LAB 
The Masters in Art and Research Collaboration (ARC) is a full time practical taught masters programme, offered by Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology. The ARC programme is co-directed by Maeve Connolly and Sinead Hogan and open to artists, critics, curators and those engaging with art in other roles. Since 2009, IADT lecturers and students have collaborated with the LAB Gallery on numerous projects, and in 2019 the LAB Gallery and IADT launched the ARC­­­­-LAB Gallery Curatorial Scholarship, a unique initiative in curatorial education at postgraduate level.  The inaugural scholar is Róisín Power Hackett.
