Opening 24th November, Block 336 will present Unseen By My Open Eyes, the first solo exhibition of Irish artist Kevin Gaffney’s work in the UK. A natural storyteller with a surrealistic bent, Gaffney considers issues of sexual and national identities through 4 seductive films that explore the construction, projection and manipulation of subjective realities.
A monograph on the artists work published by Black Dog will accompany the exhibition.
Kathleen Soriano is an independent curator and Chair of the Liverpool Biennial, formerly Director of Exhibitions at the Royal Academy of Arts, and Director of Compton Verney Art Gallery.
In addition to Arts Council England support, this exhibition is also supported by The Elephant Trust, The Arts Council of Ireland, Culture Ireland, Sky Arts and Guinness.
