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.

Future Forecast is a series of events and artistic interventions forming part of a speculative voyage towards the future. Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
