‘What Alice Found There’ is a temporary outdoor exhibition inspired by the nonsensical elements of Lewis Carroll’s book ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’.
The exhibition prompts questions about the notion of what can be considered logical, encouraging visitors to enter into a world of fantasy and daydreams.
Eleven artists have been chosen to create work that is engaged with notions of impossibility, the uncanny and the imaginary to create a labyrinth of site specific installations and live art. These live performances aim to encourage play and participation with young people and their families, creating a dynamic outdoor experience.
The exhibition will open on bank holiday Monday 6th June and run until Sunday 19th June.
The live art performances will take place on the opening day Monday 6th June from 2pm until about 5pm and on the following weekends – the 11th & 12th June and the 18th & 19th June, again from 2pm until 5pm.
There will also be art situated throughout the park for the duration of the exhibition.
This exhibition is made possible by The Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Council, The Red Stables Artists Studios and Open Spaces.
