We review Gary Coyle’s latest exhibition Into The Woods, at Ashford Gallery, RHA and David Godbold’s More Like Living Than Life Itself at the Kerlin Gallery

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.
The Moth StorySLAM is breathing new life into the Irish tradition of storytelling.
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.
