Highlights Arts And Culture
Arts and Culture
A selection of must-see exhibitions at this year’s PhotoIreland, which runs from 1st to 31st July in Gallery of Photography Ireland, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar.
Foregoing the wholesome institutional embrace of the gallery, Foaming at the Mouth is a ‘visual art spoken word’ event which takes the best Irish artists, writers, and performers out of the white cube and into venues that are far less definitively shaped. We caught up with its organisers, Emer Lynch and Tracy Hanna, to discuss the fruitful marriage of visual art and language.
Art student Sophia and bull rider Luke are classic star-crossed lovers from two different worlds, lacking only in chemistry, tension and actual character traits.
Sam Keogh’s Four Fold refers to an elaboration on the ‘threefold death’ supposedly inflicted on the Croghan man, a ritual sacrifice involving the delivery of three mortal wounds.
In her first solo show on Irish soil, Karla Black brings her nimble style of on-site installation work to the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Transport yourself to the Basque Country for one special evening on Friday 19th June as the Alliance Française hosts a celebration of the culture and traditions of Le Pays Basque.
Like its older siblings the Fringe and Theatre festivals, the Dance Festival takes in venues across the city, stretching out comfortably like a visitor on Dublin’s couch for the duration of the programme, embracing spaces both big and small, lo-fi and luxurious.
Isabel Nolan draws on considered research to create a show in Kerlin Gallery of colourful works realised with playful certainty: Bent Knees Are A Give.
Blink and you might miss it, but every second April something remarkable takes place in Dublin for fans of jazz and experimental music. It’s a far cry from the country’s other jazz events, like the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival that pulls in the big names, with wizened professionals churning out standards from the Great American Songbook year after year
There is a strong sense of Wylie’s painting process in her work. Her embrace of mistakes is made transparent through corrective painting; smooth white and pink patches stand out against the coarse texture of her un-primed canvases. The strength of Wylie’s work lies in her ability to discern when to forego the intentional, in favour of the accidental.
Two exhibitions in Dublin this year by Richard Proffitt and Garrett Phelan have explored a contemporary kind of occultism.
As St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaches, pubs prepare for the influx of tourists and locals Happenings have also been preparing for the festivities, but they have something different in mind from the drunken crowds.
Snask are an exuberant, eccentric and extremely entertaining design firm based in Stockholm for whom conventionality is a curse word. We spoke with creative director and founder Fredrik Öst about keeping all the plates spinning.
We chat with Scottish-born and Dublin-based illustrator Steve Doogan about his practice and his upcoming appearance at OFFSET 2015.
Angus Hyland is a British graphic designer and is head of the London branch of Pentagram, and has worked with clients such as the BBC, The British Museum, Penguin and the Tate Modern. He is also creative consultant director of Laurence King Publishing. We spoke to him ahead of his appearance at OFFSET 2015.
Cartoon Saloon are somewhat of a golden child of Irish animation at the moment. Hailing from Kilkenny, the group have been nominated for two Oscars, the most recent of which Song of the Sea, will be released in Ireland this summer.
To kick off our coverage of OFFSET 2015, we chat with OFFSET Creative Director and founder Bren Byrne.
We spoke to artist Hannah Sawtell to gain some insight into her diverse practice in the lead up to her performance at PLASTIK Festival of artists moving image.
