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.

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…
