“so it is”

Exhibition Website

Apr 7 2017 - Aug 6 2017

Seven artists have been chosen to present work in so it is. John Carson, an accomplished performance artist, educator and researcher, has curated the
exhibition. Artists participating in so it is include Ursula Burke, Willie Doherty, Rita Duffy, John Kindness, Locky Morris, Philip Napier, and Paul Seawright.

John Carson is a native of Belfast who lived and worked in Northern Ireland through the seventies. He has invited artists whose early work responded to the “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland.

“I selected these artists because I have admired for a long time, the strength, depth and integrity of their work," John Carson said. "They have all found ways of making powerful and uncompromising artistic statements in challenging circumstances."
