“…what people don’t understand… is that what happens in the market is pivotal to their lives… not on the periphery, but slap, bang, in the middle…” – from telephone conversation with Trader (name withheld), Dealing Room, Investment Bank, London, February 2013

Mark Curran’s challenging new project THE MARKET sets out to make visible – literally and metaphorically – the sphere where our futures are speculated upon. His multi-media installation includes photographs, films, transcripts of interviews and a soundscape that investigate the functioning of the global stock and commodity markets. From Dublin to London, Frankfurt and Addis Abeba, the artist concentrates on the experience of individuals working within a supremely complex system.

This exhibition was presented in Ireland as part of a nationwide artistic project curated by Helen Carey (director of Limerick City Gallery of Art) to mark the centenary of the 1913 industrial conflict known as the Dublin Lockout.
