In pictures: Tiny Little Histories exhibition opens at Limerick Gallery City of Art – Page 1 of 11
THE GAFF, a resource for community and voluntary arts in Limerick, has officially opened its Tiny Little Histories exhibition at the Limerick City Gallery of Art.
The exhibition, which aims to promote untold or little-known historical stories, features a variety of audio and photographic exhibits.
The project was piloted in 2021, during the Covid pandemic, through online gatherings and small in-person gatherings to help artists create work throughout Covid.
The group then secured funding from the Arts Council and Limerick City and County Council to develop the idea and create an exhibition.
“We now have ten audio artists, speaking about 10 little-known stories that will be accompanied by the work of artist photographer Seán O’Riordan,” explained Maeve McGrath, curator of the exhibition which will run until the start of the next month.
