11 October 2010 | Giles Ryder is looking forward to two international exhibitions in October and November.

The first,
UND 6 – INTERCONTINENTAL, opens this week at Schwartz Gallery’s Project Space in London. The exhibition has been curated by Billy Gruner of SNO in Sydney, Jan van der Ploeg of PS in Amsterdam and Tilman of CCNOA in Brussels – and with credentials like this, it’s no surprise the focus of the exhibition is on the broad church of non-objective contemporary art. Ryder’s work will feature alongside that of Ruark Lewis, Lynne Eastaway and Clemens Hollerer among others.

In November, Ryder will participate in
Collective Contemporary Art at the Royal Dublin Society. “The Royal Dublin Society is set up like an art fair, but without galleries and artists are self-presenting as such,” explains Ryder. “The booths are made out of old timber patina stable panels. It should be an interesting project.” The three-day event is curated and comprises two exhibitions plus talks and workshops. Ryder plans to exhibit a sculptural piece constructed with neon tubing.
