“Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd.”Deleuze & Guattari, Capitalism and Schizophrenia, 1987

Superprojects in partnership with ForerunnerThe LAB Gallery and the Liberties Training Centre Dublin is pleased to present Let’s Get The Hell Outta Here, a group exhibition by participants in the Digital Media Art & Design (DMAD) course at Liberties Training Centre, opening on Saturday June 29 and running until Saturday August 24, 2024 at The LAB Gallery in Dublin.

Let’s Get the Hell Outta Here is the result of a two year research project between DMAD and the artistic practice Forerunner, beginning in January 2023, when Superprojects in partnership with The LAB Gallery invited Forerunner to develop an artistic programme with a group of young people. Forerunner and the students of DMAD have spent more than a year working together in a series of site visits and workshops, exploring hidden and public spaces and online worlds as ways to create images and art together, as well as creating objects and systems. 

Centred around so-called “free” spaces and public shared spaces, the project is inspired by a collective probing of installation art, asking what makes a “space”, and how can spaces be manipulated and understood through use. Let’s Get the Hell Outta Here is an opportunity to present the results of this collective research. 

Let’s get the hell outta here. In the museum, behind glass cases and do not cross rope. In the restaurant with queues and counters and rules. In the shopping center with one way systems, security guards and money. In the gallery with silence and glances and art history. Escape rooms are the language of the city.

Let’s get the hell outta here. Spaces constantly ask us if we know how to use them. Some have subtle hints and clues, sometimes they have angry signs and sometimes you have to know. Some spaces are stuck, they can’t be changed or made different but they could still be used differently.

Let’s get the hell outta here. Said by one character to another at the end of one scene, with hope, with a way out, with the promise of the next. All rooms are escape rooms if you know how to read them. 

Let’s Get the Hell Outta Here is accompanied by an essay by artist and curator Yifeng Wei  and a series of limited edition T-shirts and prints designed by the students during the programme. The exhibition is co-curated by Forerunner and Superprojects’ Director/Curator Rayne Booth. The project will conclude later in 2024 with the release and screening of a documentary video about the programme. 

Contributing artists: Josue Alejandro Pena Argueta, AJ Brownlow, Jonathan Carley, DRIFT2K, Shannon Gascoigne, Ghostlegs, Toni Gumble, Dwayne Kamai, Q Kamai, Morgan McAllister, Colm Mac Bride, Daniel Matters, MuchoMistrust, Leah Mulligan, Nathan O’Brien, Georgia O’Keeffe, Aisling Sands, RosarioSlamchamp, Kian Tunstead, Dylan Whelan.

Superprojects is a leading arts organization connecting young audiences with contemporary art and artists. Funded by The Arts Council, Superprojects’ work includes school-based workshops, commissions and other programmes that open up the richness of national and international contemporary art practice to young participants; whilst actively fostering their development as meaning-makers and artists. Rayne Booth is the Director and Curator; Giulia Berto is the Marketing and PR Assistant. superprojects.org

Forerunner is a collaborative practice founded in 2016 by Tom WattAndreas Kindler von Knobloch and Tanad Aaron. Working within architectural form, building practices and the gallery as a staging ground, their practice seeks to quietly upgrade or criticize by fixing. Their work has an added feeling of temporality, hanging between a site of production (studio/workshop) and display (gallery/public). www.forerunner.ie

The Liberties Training Centre is located on Oliver Bond Street in the heart of Dublin 8. The learners who took part in this project are part of the Digital Media Art & Design (DMAD) course.
