The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - PATRICK FREYNE -

Vis­ual artist James Ear­ley

Yvonne Far­rell and Shel­ley McNa­mara’s theme for the main ex­hi­bi­tion at the Venice Bi­en­nale, which ex­tends through­out the Central Pavil­ion at the Giar­dini and also the vast Arse­nale, is Freespace. 71 par­tic­i­pants have been in­vited to ex­plore ideas re­lat­ing to gift­ing, ex­change, cre­at­ing space for gen­eros­ity – whether within build­ings, or within the hu­man psy­che, and space within our towns and ci­ties for un­planned, un­pro­grammed ac­tiv­i­ties, free for uses not yet con­ceived.

Ir­ish ar­chi­tects in­volved are de Bla­cam andMeagher,Nial­lMcLaugh­linAr­chi­tects, O’Don­nell + Tuomey, and Hall McKnight from Belfast.
