After an all Ireland call for work responding to the theme of 'How Do You Know?' the artist-run gallery 126 curated a diverse range of works and practices to be highlighted in the Bay Area.

Approaches range from the medical and methodical to those of chance and humour. The show features a range of media from painting and collage to video and installation. Artists showing are: Vera Klute, Paul Murnaghan, Padraig Robinson, Christopher Banahan, Jackie Nickerson, Emma Houlihan, Adelle Hickey, Bernie Masterson, Emmet Kierans, Fiona Chambers, John Jones, Theresa Nanigan, Paul Hickey, Helena O’Connor, Tanya O’Keefe and James Hayes.

Blankspace is proud to present a group exhibition curated by 126 in Galway Ireland. Blankspace has worked with 126 for over a year to produce exchange opportunities for local artists from both regions. Bay Area artists will be exhibiting work in Galway, Ireland opening August 19th. Both galleries share similar missions and goals when it comes to producing exhibitions; 126 and Blankspace are both artist-run exhibition spaces that promote strong conceptual approaches and experimentation in art making.
