Eamon O’Kane: A History of Play | Sunday 11 October – Saturday 31 October 2015 | Galway Arts Centre

Artist Eamon O’Kane will transform Gallery One at Galway Arts Centre into an interactive installation inspired by the educational play objects devised by educator and inventor of Kindergarten Friedrich Fröbel. The installation comprises many elements; predominantly educational play materials known as Fröbel Gifts –colorful spheres, cylinders, and tubes. These “gifts” are used for unlocking creativity at an early age by teaching children about three-dimensional shapes and colours, and their relationship to the environment and nature.

Eamon O’Kane has exhibited widely and is the recipient of many awards and scholarships including the Taylor Art Award, The Tony O’Malley Award and a Fullbright Award. He has had over forty solos exhibitions including shows in Berlin, Frankfurt, Dublin, Zurich, New York and London and is Professor of Visual Art at Bergen Academy of Art & Design, Norway.
