Bealtine Festival 2019 and Project Arts Centre present
Project Arts Centre invites you to join Sarah Durcan who will lead a special tour to respond to the outstanding work of artist Roee Rosen in his first ever solo exhibition in Ireland ‘Exorcisms’. Roee Rosen is an American-Israeli is a painter, novelist and filmmaker. The internationally-acclaimed and widely exhibiting Rosen has since the 1990s been addressing via numerous personae, hybridised narratives and paradoxical stories the instrumentalization and ritualization of history and of historical trauma, the complex relationship of collective and personal histories and the politics of identity.
