INTERRUPTED BLACK OUT: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 14 Aug - 14 Aug

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Meggy Rustamova

Dive Bar events are always free. Capacity is limited to 50 people, with places given on a first come, first served basis.

On this evening, Meggy Rustamova will host a performative screening event, Interrupted black out, in the space of the exhibition. Through her practice she often establishes a reciprocal relationship with her audience, encouraging them to fill in the gaps in her performance, whether through imagination, physical inclination or an impetus towards facilitation. Her stories are formed in the telling. The virgin cocktail Herky-jerky eclipse will be served at the bar.

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?

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

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
