Temple Bar Gallery & Studios is pleased to present New Black'n'White - a series of screenings of contemporary art from Finland. The artists involved in the show represent recent developments in the contemporary animation scene in Finland. All the works on display have been completed the period 2009-2010.
In July 2010, Finnish curator Laura Köönikkä spent one month as a studio resident at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, as part of an exchange between TBG&S and HIAP (Helsinki International Artist-in-residence Programme). Arising from her stay, she conceived of this exhibition showcasing new Finnish Animation art video. As part of the exchange, Irish artist Martin Healy will spend a period of time living and working at the Cable Factory studios in Helsinki in 2010.
