Paula Rego, Anish Kapoor, Seán Scully and Marlene Dumas are just some of the international names who feature in Belonging, a major exhibition that recently opened in Limerick city. Eight different venues around the city play host to a total of 82 works drawn from the collection of the European Investment Bank, by artists from all 27 countries of the European Union, along with the UK.

22 Blue, A 22 Cyanotype collection, created by students from the Painting Department at the Limerick School of Art and Design, Technological University of the Shannon. Joins the belonging exhibition during it stay at the Hunt Museum, Limerick.

Each participating student selected an artist to interpret from the EIB Belonging Exhibition at the Hunt Museum including Andy Warhol, Marlene Dumas, Paula Rego among others.

The diverse eclectic mix of cyanotypes aim to uncover and nurture a connection and a sense of belonging to European Contemporary Art and Artists. The alternative viewpoints and relationships offered through the cyanotypes engage with ideas of abstraction, humour, drawing, opticality and intuitive thinking.

Viewed as a collective whole or individually they add a vitality and sense of curiosity to how an emerging younger generation of artists can pivot a response to European Art and add to the flow of thinking around Contemporary Art of the 21st century.
