NIVAL Publication

A collaborative project in which an unconventional and conceptual publication was to be created. Sculpture Culture marks the 15th anniversary of the Sculpture in Context exhibition, an event held annually in the National Botanic Gardens, as it details the growth of the exhibition and its contributing organisers and artists. Archived in the National Irish Visual Arts Libary (NIVAL), May 2016.


With the concept of growth in mind, the publication alludes to the golden ratio as both type and image increase throughout. Angular tabs were created in order to mimic the geometry of the structural glass houses present in the gardens.


Sincere thanks to all contributing organisers, artists, and visitors without whom this publication could not have been created. Designed and curated by Conor Foran, Dan Eames, and Barbara Bennett.
