> DESCRIPTION

Wake Amusements is an exhibition organized by Curator Matt Packer from the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, University College Cork. The exhibition features artist books by 12 contemporary Irish artists, who each use the book format as a space of display, investigation and interaction. Adopting the title of 'wake amusements', and drawing reference to the jovial funerary practices that were an Irish folk tradition up until the turn of the 20th century, the artists books have been selected to reflect the theme of enlivening the dead as applied to people, places, and objects. The exhibition features the following Irish artists: Fergus Feehily, Simon Cutts, Sean Lynch, Alice Maher, David Sherry, Daniel Jewesbury, Stephen Brandes, Ciara Healy, Nevan Lehart, Jaki Irvine, Erica Van Horn, and Garrett Phelan. This project is funded in part by Culture Ireland's initiative Imagine Ireland – A Year of Irish Artists in America 2011.
