A SIMULTANEOUS POEM: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 21 Aug - 21 Aug

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Dina Danish

Dive Bar events are always free and this will be a seated event with limited capacity. To ensure your place, please email your name to gallery@projectartscentre.ie. We advise that you arrive by 6:10pm, or risk losing your spot at the Dive Bar.

On this evening, Dina Danish will present a press conference, which will be conducted by a panel of experts, with assistance from the props department. Just to note, if A Simultaneous Poem were to take place, it would involve Charlie Chaplin, Theo van Doesburg, Kurt Schwitters and the ridiculously good-looking Letterist International (and everybody else). Cocktail of the evening will be The French 75, served on ice for €5.

This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism
