‘Hopscotch’, was a group show presented by the Olivier Cornett Gallery at Vue, Ireland’s National Contemporary Art Fair at the RHA. The gallery artists who have participated in this show are Annika Berglund, Michelle Byrne, Conrad Frankel, Hugh Cummins, John Fitzsimons, Jordi Fornies, Jason Lowe, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Yanny Petters, Kelly Ratchford and Adrienne Symes.

This year is marked by the 150th anniversary of the publication of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and Universal Children’s Day is celebrated in November every year. With these two events in mind, the gallery asked its artists to present or create works based around the themes of childhood memories and children’s games. Selected pieces are accompanied by text written by a group of young writers reacting to the works, in collaboration with Fighting Words, the creative writing centre established by Seán Love and Roddy Doyle in 2009.
