Person, Presence, Perception
From 20th June to 6th November 2023, the Casino will play host to the portrait exhibition Person Presence Perception, 41 creations by 40 artists examining how people are depicted in artworks, how we form impressions of others based on how they are depicted and how we form our own relationship with the image and our understanding of it. Each artist portrays human beings in a variety of different ways, representing the artist’s vision and how they each choose to present each person.
The Exhibition is on view during the daily guided tours of the Casino at 10am, 12pm, 2pm or 4pm or else you can view the exhibition alone between 3-5pm Wednesdays or 10-12pm Saturdays. All enquiries on 01 833 16 18 or email email@example.com
One of the artists from our current Person Presence Perception art exhibition is Christopher Banahan, a visual artist who specialises in contemporary portrait painting. His portrait Lizzie in Interior is in the China Closet (the ladies room) in the Casino Marino.
