Courbet’s Tent is about the locations and contexts of contemporary painting practice. Its premise is that, perhaps more than other forms of Fine Art practice, paintings often have a double life: they can hold worlds within them, but also exist in places that may change their perceived content. Paintings can have one life in the studio, and another once they take flight.
Watch this space for further developments. In the meantime, you can go to the Satis House website to view the exhibition ‘Long they look, and deeply’, for a flavour of things to come: curators Kim McAleese and Eoin Dara will talk about this show in a forthcoming interview in Courbet’s Tent.
