Mak9 @ The Built Heritage weekend.

draw on the walls

MAK9 are developing an exciting arts and architectural partnership project with Holywell Trust and owners of built heritage landmarks within the city of Derry that will result in a feature exhibition opening in late September.

Join MAK9 and artists on the ‘MAK9: An Exhibition in the Making’ event, on the 14th September during the Built Heritage weekend.  Get a sneak preview of artists installing artworks in preparation of the Draw On The Walls exhibition. There they will be open to questions and discussion about their artwork and project development, which have lead to the creation of the handmade objects and sculptures, in response to locations such as Boomhall, the Deanery basement and the Walls of Derry City.

MAK9 will present the background information and curatorial explorations the project has taken throughout the year of culture. They will explore the issues underpinning the importance to examine these buildings as a place of cultural renewal and artistic investigation and their architectural significance within the landscape of the city.
