CURATION

After instigating projects in Ireland and Italy and selecting Intermedia in Cork, Brian was invited to curate the following exhibitions.

1999 Inner Art
This exhibition took place in inner city Dublin with its drug abuse and deprivation. Brian was sponsored to travel to Europe to look at the work of artists who could deal with issues like these and selected both international and Irish artists for the show.

The exhibition took place in venues as diverse as the confessional in a church to the local politicians surgery.
