Remember Me In 1983

Remember Me In 1983 is a new exhibition of nostalgic artwork by Kilkenny man Mick Minogue and it opens this coming Thursday night in the Coach Road Studios, Coach Road, Kilkenny. This is a lovely space where Mick has exhibited in the past but not to the degree that he will this week.

The exhibition is based around old tv series and cartoons from the 1980's and Mick has created some beautiful, bittersweet and tragic pieces of art from these much beloved staples of our 1980's childhoods (Check out Death Of Superted... it'd bring a tear to an oul shtone). He has been working on this series of paintings for the past year and on the eve of the Kilkenny Arts Festival he's showing it off. His excellent gig poster for The Lion's Mane last year was another great taster of what this work is. Also keep an eye on the lovely teaser poster campaign he has running around town where you can snatch glimpses of Mick's take on He Man and Ghostbusters.

What I'm reeaally excited about is the Saturday morning opening Mick is hosting this coming weekend. Complete with breakfast cereals, old cartoons and pyjamas, it's going to be some serious childhood regression for any of us kids of the 80's. I can't wait for 1983. I missed it the first time.
