Over the winter period, The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, UCC hosts two exhibitions that explore the relationship between art and architecture. ‘Folly: Art after Architecture’ brings together Irish and international contemporary artists, whose work has been inspired by iconic buildings of architectural modernism. Concerned with issues of representation and interpretation, as well as history and space of specific structures, the artists invite us to encounter architecture in new and exciting ways. ‘Searching For the New Jerusalem’ presents the original preparatory drawings designed by the Victorian architect, William Burges. Burges was commissioned to rebuild Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork in 1863 and his drawings include designs for the architecture, stained glass window and furniture of the building.[/caption]
