Serving to Ireland’s art community since 2012!
KPP is Ireland’s only inter-organisational tourney for the visual arts, where we cheers and cheer, clinking a beverage with one hand while swatting a small white ball away with the other.
The 2022, 10th annual tourney in The Complex was preceded by a two day exhibition, featuring all 7 of the the artist-created Krazy Tables which have amused (and frustrated 😉 participants and spectators since we began commissioning them in 2016! This included all-new tables from Liliane Puthod and Ella Bertilsson.
King Ping Pong started in Monster Truck in 2012 as one in a series of events in the Minimum/Maximum after-hour programme. It was such a success, that myself and Monster Truck director Pater Prendergast decided to run it yearly. All are welcome, but participation in the tournament is only open to visual arts workers of any kind. Over the years, pretty much every organisation in Dublin and many beyond have fielded players.
KRAZY TABLE makers:
Ella Bertilsson (2022) / Liliane Puthod (2022) / Conor O’Sullivan (2021)
Daire McEvoy (2019) / Tanad Aaron (2018) / David Lunney (2017)
Prendergast & Moor (2016/22)
