THE TRUTH BOOTH


'Mike G...' a collaborative project with the board of 126 Artist-run Gallery
This Must Be The Place
 
Curated by Paul Murnaghan and Sally Timmons
IMOCA (Irish Museum of Contemporary Art), Dublin
March 2009

The curators asked the question of ten artist–led collectives "What is it that you do?" 126 responded by recreating a construction hoarding found in Galway. The hoarding included representations local graffiti, posters, and examples of the member's own practices. This served as a metaphor for the work that 126 does in building and representing an artistic community. 126 has put forward that every show, everthing and every project beyond the physical gallery space, is a work in progress.
