James L. Hayes

The Glucksman is delighted to partner with Cork City Libraries to welcome artist James L. Hayes to Hollyhill Library for a public talk on Homegrown

Cork City Libraries have borrowed ten artworks from the Art Library that respond to themes of Climate Change, The Environment, and Sustainability, to present in libraries across Cork city until December 16. As part of this loan, The Glucksman invited artist James L. Hayes to give a public talk in Hollyhill Library where he will share insights his artwork Homegrown which is on display at Hollyhill Library. The Art Library is a loan collection of artworks that is available to schools, community hubs and healthcare settings across Ireland, and is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.

James L Hayes is an Irish contemporary visual artist whose current work and research practice reinvests a modernist sculptural language. His recent projects use methods of artistic production as a means by which to interrogate the boundaries between artist, artisan and art object in order to draw out the often-incongruous relationships between finished art objects, and the industrial aspects of the processes that produce these revered objects. He has been awarded numerous awards and grants to support his practice and he also invests heavily in the University educational sector and work across the UK & US higher education system frequently taking part in visiting lecturing series and international cross collegial projects and events. Hayes is a graduate of Limerick School of Art & Design, De Montfort University Leicester and the University of London. He is the principal lecturer in Sculpture at the Crawford College of Art in Cork, Ireland.
