Burren College of Art is pleased to host the first solo exhibition of works by Steven Stapleton. Internationally recognised through his pioneering experiments in sound with avant garde band Nurse With Wound, Steven is an acclaimed visual artist who has worked across multiple media. Doing What We Are Told Makes Us Free will bring together his work in collage, assemblage and painting in a dynamic gallery installation. As his first major solo exhibition, it will provide a rare opportunity to experience Stapleton’s multi dimensional approach to visual art, which compliments and expands his extensive body of work in sonic experimentation.
