Talk by Jonathan Legge of Design Duo Makers & Brothers

Date and Time: Wednesday 11th March 2015 at 11.30am

Venue: DLT, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, Sharman Crawford Street

Jonathan Legge is a Creative Consultant working in London and Dublin.

Jonathan Legge is the Founder and Creative Director of the Irish e-commerce company, Makers & Brothers.

Makers& Brothers, is a project developed by two brothers, Jonathan and Mark Legge. They are an online retail venture founded on a belief in the simple things; the handmade, objects of integrity, contemporary vernaculars. Raw, genuine qualities that bring meaning and depth to life and the objects one surrounds oneself with. They are an Irish company, involved locally but with an international reach and relevance. They offer a simple curation of everyday design and craft. A collection of the best from Ireland and further afield; objects of use, the simple, beautiful and sometimes nicely odd. They believe in a quite, human approach to retail.

There’s a Ghost in my House 2

Date and Time: Friday 13 March, 11:30am3:30pm
Venue: UTC
Join us for this Paint Club event at CIT Crawford College of Art and Design. Eight artists discuss their practice’s relationship to particular paintings from history. Building on a similar event at Tate Britain in 2014 this event will address the issue of what kind of working relationship contemporary artists might hope to have with painting’s rich but sometimes turbulent history. Does contemporary painting, to gain significance, always have to genuflect to art of the past?Guest panel will be chaired by Donal Moloney and Tom Helyar-Cardwell. Presenters: Colin Crotty, Jo Kelly, Maureen O’Connor, Diana Copperwhite, Sharon McCarthy, Rebecca Bradley, Donal Moloney and Tom Helyar-Cardwell.Paint Club was set up by staff and students of University of the Arts London as a research network, open to anyone with an interest in contemporary painting. It provides a forum for the discussion of painting, its context within contemporary art practice and its relationship to research, its own history and other forms of art.
