In-person and online talk by Fred Hohler on Watercolour World, an online resource of art from collections all over the world.
Prior to the arrival of the mass-produced camera in 1900, watercolour was the medium we used to record the world we encountered. The Watercolour World's mission is to collect these works - from private and public collections from across the globe - into a free, geolocated online database, www.watercolourworld.org. This talk by Fred Hohler, founder of the Public Catalogue Foundation (now Art/UK) and subsequent founder of the Watercolour World project, will discuss this mission in an Irish context.
Lecture begins at 6pm (Registration from 5.45pm)
Online €10 (link will be send by lunchtime on the day of the talk)

The lectures will take place in the O'Connell Room at the IGS City Assembly House, 58 South William Street, Dublin 2. Doors open at 5.45pm. Attendees are asked to be in their seats by 5.55pm.
