Bart Lodewijks: Sligo Drawings, 2014 | Bart Lodewijks: The Model Drawing / Unforgettable Neighbourhoods | Thursday 14 January – Sunday 27 March 2016 | The Model

The Model will open a unique exhibition featuring Dutch artist Bart Lodewijks on 30 January on view until 27 March. The Model Drawing / Unforgettable Neighbourhoods will showcase Lodewijks’s three-year drawing project in the Sligo neighbourhoods of Doorly Park, Riverside and Garavogue Villas as well as similar projects released in cities around the world since 2000. The exhibition includes chalk drawings, which stretch across the gallery walls, and images from the artist’s archive are reprinted in the form of a free limited edition newspaper. Several films on the artist’s work are presented by filmmakers Griet Teck, Robbrecht Desmet, Gunter Blokken and photographer Huig Barteis.

Born in 1972, Bart Lodewijks makes chalk drawings in public and private spaces in urban environments and writes about the process. Drawings and texts come together in publications, made in collaboration with independent art publisher ROMA Publications.

To mark the opening of the exhibition, The Model will present a symposium. Artist and lecturer Ronnie Hughes will chair an afternoon of talks, film, discussions and actions, followed by a presentation of the book Sligo Drawings, a guided tour of the exhibition led by Philippe Van Cauteran in conversation with Bart Lodewijks and the curators. The unveiling of a new permanent chalk drawing in The Model atrium space will follow this at the official opening at 4.30pm.


Symposium €15 / €10 (including lunch by Sligo Global Kitchen) • All welcome • Bookings can be made at www.themodel.ie/exhibitions/symposium

A publication of images and texts by Lodewijks will accompany the exhibition published by The Model andROMA Publications.


Curated by Marie Louise Blaney and Danielle van Zuijlen.

This project is made possible by the generous support of The Community Foundation of Ireland and Mondriaan Fund, The Netherland.
