‘Free Market’ is an architecture exhibition and programme of events celebrating, exploring and re-imagining the vital role of Ireland’s small town market places. The ‘Free Market’ pavilion will visit the Kilmallock Library from 19th - 22nd September, with a programme of informative and fun events planned over threedays. The exhibition will begin with a launch party in Kilmallock library on Thursday September 19th and a free public lecture on the Free Market project. In Kilmallock, there will be events with community groups, local school children and Architecture students from
SAUL, and will host guided town walks around Kilmallock’s historical town walls. For Culture Night, Free Market will be available to the public from 6pm to 9pm at Kilmallock Library.
Original content from the Free Market Venice Biennale Pavilion will be included in the exhibition – including architectural models and drawings. These describe both the historic and current conditions of small Irish market towns as well as their possible futures. Specially commissioned photography will also be included, as will audio soundscapes and recordings – including a specifically designed Kilmallock sound piece. Free Market News, which contains writings on rural towns from nearly 40 expert contributors, will be available to browse and take home.
