Event three

Paul McAree is Curator at Lismore Castle Arts in Co Waterford, which has hosted solo exhibitions by Gerard Byrne, Camille Henrot and Wilhelm Sasnal. Previously McAree worked at Breaking Ground, Tate Modern and Ikon Gallery Birmingham, and co-founded and directed Colony Gallery in Birmingham from 2007 – 2010. Paul McAree is also founder of FLOOD, an occasional contemporary art project in Ireland. FLOOD hosted several group exhibitions in Dublin city centre from 2013-2014 including artists Alan Butler, Martin Healy, Nevan Lahart, Beatriz Olabarrieta, and Suzanne Treister.


Marcel Vidal graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2009. His approach to sculpture and its trash aesthetic is strongly contrasted by his finely made paintings in oil and watercolour works. The imagery is often expanded, reminiscent of digital cropping. His paintings and sculptures often work in distinct contrast with each other. Marcel is recipient of the Firestation Sculpture Workshop Award & Bursary 2018. He is a current member of Temple Bar Gallery and Studios.
