Face to Face, a new work by Brian Eno, goes on display at Living Canvas at Wilton Park.

Posted July 5, 2022 in Arts and Culture


Internationally renowned musician, producer, and visual artist, Brian Eno first came to prominence as a founder member of Roxy Music. Since then, his production credits have included albums with Talking Heads, U2, Laurie Anderson, and Coldplay. His collaborations include recordings with David Bowie, John Cale, David Byrne, Grace Jones, and most recently with his brother, Roger, on Mixing Colours. 

A cult figure in the world of music, Brian Eno’s parallel career in art has seen installations around the world, from the Venice Biennale to Ritan Park, Beijing.  

Now, a major new work by Eno, Face to Face, will screen at Living Canvas in Dublin city this summer.  Using specially developed software, Face to Face generates a chain of human faces, creating “people who have never actually existed, intermediate humans…” 

Face to Face headlines the Summer Programme at Living Canvas, which also includes works by Grace Weir, Joy Gerrard, EL Putnam, Simon Reilly, and Lucy McKenna. Mondays bring a special focus on the Grand Canal itself, while New Works on Wednesday showcases art by emerging makers. 

 FACE TO FACE has been commissioned by IPUT Real Estate for Living Canvas. This spectacular free open air art exhibition evolves daily on the banks of the Grand Canal. The Summer Season launches on July 2nd and runs until September 30th.  

IPUT Real Estate is Ireland’s leading property company and visionary supporter of the arts. The new Summer Programme for Living Canvas at Wilton Park, sited on the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin is available at www.iput.com/living-canvas
