Kevin Kavanagh Gallery is presenting The World Needs A Narrative, a group exhibition featuring Karin Brunnermeier, Henry Darger, Neil Farber, Tony Fitzpatrick, Michael Kalmbach, Basim Magdy, Jason McLean, Guy Richards Smit and Ken Solomon. The exhibition features works on paper by nine artists for whom the art of storytelling is central. The stories that they recount are varied – from autobiographical, psychological and fantastical modern day fables to sociological commentary and political satire. Karin Brunnermeier’s drawings, sculptures and installations could be viewed as a series of intricate portraits. Brunnermeier's characters and the stories that she creates around them, are based on the real and imagined and are central to the understanding of her work. Also featured are some works by Henry Darger, the Chicagoan artists who painted over 300 imaginatively constructed fanstasy drawings, which have been come to be regarded as one of the 20th century's most original and unusual literary works. The World Needs A Narrative also features the surreal works of Neil Farber, some Tony Fitzpatrick prints and Michael Kalmbach's watercolour and plaster sculptures. This exhibition runs until 18th October at the Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin 8.
