Culture Night 2019

Dates: 20 Sep - 20 Sep

Show Time: 4.30pm - 9pm

Tickets: €0 (Free Admission)

Join Project Arts Centre in celebrating Culture Night 2019 with a special guided tour, of our latest exhibition, ‘Wait it Out’ by Sandra Johnston. The tour will be lead by artist and curator Ciara McKeon.

This landmark solo exhibition of newly commissioned work by Northern Irish artist brings together salvaged film materials from the 1950s and 60s, documentary footage filmed by the artist in the 1990s and new performance based video work. Consisting of two main parts, Wait it Out negotiates personal and historical narratives in relation to the reverberation of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.

Wait it Out draws together new video works that have evolved from the artist’s own archive of performative actions. They are positioned here in ways that offer a potential for cross-referencing with specific historical events and residues that have significantly shaped the standpoints conveyed within the actions.

Wait it Out was commissioned and produced by Project Arts Centre, Dublin with support from the Irish Museum of Modern Art Production Residency and the Arts Department, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

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.…
