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.
We recently embarked on an intriguing voyage of cerebral discovery through the Chambers of the Curious in downtown Brussels.
Eminent Domain II at Pallas Projects is the second exhibition of an on-going project by Gillian Lawler which is inspired by the abandoned town of Centralia in Pennsylvania.
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).
In spite of its accessibility – it only requires you having an internet ready mobile device to access the installation’s control panel at www.continuousdrift.com – it has remained a bit of a secret, a slow-burning discovery for those beyond Dublin’s art-crowd.
