TITLE: Close Encounter: Meetings with Remarkable Buildings
Presented by Irish Architecture Foundation in partnership with the The Glucksman and Visual Carlow
Sub-Title: Featuring selected works from the 16th International Architecture Biennale, Venice
GALLERY: Main Gallery
DATES: 20th September – 19th January 2020
VISUAL are delighted to present Close Encounters: Meetings with Remarkable Buildings curated by
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara. Originally presented at the 2018 Venice Architecture
Biennale as part of the FREESPACE exhibition in the Central Pavilion.
Funded by the Arts Council, the aim of the initiative was to enable sixteen Irish architects, who’s
teams represent a mix of both emerging and more established practitioners, to develop skills in
presenting and communicating their work to a public audience in Venice.
The sixteen contemporary practicing architect teams researched a distinguished building of the
curators choosing, allowing them to interpret the work in a way that will communicate with the
public the core idea of these chosen buildings and bring the legacy of these buildings alive.
The tour gives audiences here an opportunity to engage with this unique exhibition of architecture
while contributing to the legacy of the Mentoring Initiative for architectural practice, curation and
culture in Ireland.
