The exhibition features a series of new works by artist Mark Orange specially made for the project, each produced in collaboration with Niall McCullough of Dublin architectural practice McCullough Mulvin Architects.

The works, in audio and video, are being presented at some of the key Dublin buildings designed by McCullough Mulvin over the past 20 years, each of the venues hosting one work, installed in the context of the building and its everyday usage. Venues include Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, the Long Room Hub and Ussher Library, Trinity College, and the Irish Architecture Foundation, Bachelors Walk.

The Irish Architecture Foundation is delighted to present two works by Mark Orange as part of this project at our McCullough Mulvin-designed headquarters on Bachelors Walk. On view in our ground floor theatre will be The Fountainhead, a video piece shot at the Ussher Library at Trinity College that restages the final scene of Ayn Rand’s infamous novel, with Niall McCullough playing the role of the heroic figure atop his own building. And in our upstairs gallery space, we will be presenting Ref: Demolition Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, the artist’s 2010 text and image work.

The exhibition is accompanied by a number of special events:

  • All venues will be open late for Culture Night, Friday September 22nd, 6–9pm.
  • The artist will conduct a walking tour of all of the McCullough Mulvin Orange venues on Saturday September 23rd, leaving Temple Bar Gallery + Studios atrium space at 2:30pm. The event is free and open to the public, please visit www.templebargallery.com/events to register.
  • Following the walking tour, there will be an exhibition reception for the project, open to all, 5–7pm, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios atrium space.

McCullough Mulvin Orange is generously supported by project awards from the Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council, and will be accompanied by the publication of a free map, with an essay by Jill Stoner, that will be available at all of the participating venues.
