Arts and Culture

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).

Arts Desk: El Lissitzky: The Artist and the State

Currently installed at the Garden Galleries in IMMA, El Lissitzky: The Artist and the State, is an exhibition curated by Annie Fletcher and Sarah Glennie. Although the show predominantly features the work of Russian constructivist artist and architect El Lissitzky, it functions more as an allegory to the work of Irish Revivalist poet, playwright, and author Alice Milligan.


Arts Desk: Display Show

Curated by Gavin Wade, with Céline Condorelli and James Langdon, ‘Display Show’ is the first iteration of an exhibition project which seeks to examine the politics of exhibition and display.

Arts Desk: Foaming at the Mouth Interview

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.

Le Pays Basque En Fete

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.

Bodies in Movement: Dublin Dance Festival

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.
