Arts and Culture

Artsdesk: Glitching Up

Ireland’s foremost interactive digital arts festival, /Glitch, returns for its fifth year, bringing a week of workshops, music, art and performance to Rua Red and MART beginning Monday 30th May. In the run up to /Glitch, we spoke with Algorithm co-conspirator and CLU member Kevin A. Freeney, who will be exhibiting two collaborative pieces with Janna Kemperman in MART and Rua Red.

Artsdesk: Out of the Wood – Bill Lynch

The Douglas Hyde Gallery is currently exhibiting a series of paintings made with oil on plywood by Bill Lynch. These thoughtful and beguiling works represent 30 years of the late artist’s evolution, and this is the first time they have been shown in Ireland.

Artsdesk: Our Kind

Alan Phelan’s Our Kind is a newly commissioned video piece for the Hugh Lane Gallery as part of their Easter Rising centenary celebrations. Positioned as a “contemporary response to Roger Casement’s trial and appeal”, Our Kind occurs on an alternate timeline wherein Casement has been acquitted of the treason charge which would have led to his execution in 1916.

Celebrating Free Events For All: Eventbrite Presents “FREE”

Starting on Monday, April 11, for one week only, Eventbrite showcases “FREE”, an exhibition of rarely seen photographs that provide a window on some of the most inspiring and seminal public events in Irish history since the formation of the state. The exhibition at The Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin’s Liberties aims to shine a light on the important role free public events play in our culture and identity, and the unifying effect they have on our communities.

 

Hendrick’s Chambers Of The Curious

Hendrick’s Chambers of the Curious promises a distinctly unconventional homage to the inherent inquisitiveness of the human mind, offering those who pass through its portals a series of eye-opening experiences designed to stimulate new and curious ways of looking at the world. This uniquely immersive experience comes to Dublin’s Henrietta Street for four nights only at the end of November.

New Blood: Interview with John Leo Gillen

New Blood is one of the highlights of the Bram Stoker Festival which takes place this Bank Holiday weekend across the city. An arty party to top them all, New Blood is organised by Mary and John, aka Mary Nally and John Leo Gillen and features an array of installations, culinary treats and fancy libations, live music from Maria Somerville, This Greedy Pig on the decks and a dress code quoted as ‘Rihanna and FKA twigs run a club in The Matrix).
