From Us, Through Them, To You
Red Square

Red Square was a group of 16-18 year olds from Kilkenny city and county, brought together by the Butler Gallery. Members of the original Red Square Kibosh group successfully applied for a European ‘Youth in Action’ grant for a project that would engage a young public with the Butler Gallery Collection. The group embarked on a series of phases of training from February – April 2011, developing ideas and skills for the realization of a Butler Gallery Collection exhibition. A milestone of the project was an overnight trip to the opening of ‘A Sense of Perspective’ at Tate Liverpool, curated by young people. A well-formed group with a whole new perspective on curating, Red Square worked collaboratively as an exhibition team from April to June 2011, debating ideas and choosing work for the exhibition.
