OMNIPRESENT: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 31 Jul - 31 Jul

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Karl Burke

This is a free event and you are all very welcome to attend. No booking is required.

On this evening, artist and musician Karl Burke will present his spatial sound piece Omnipresent. Originally conceived as the soundtrack to the play The Maids, the piece is recomposed here as a site specific sculptural installation using sound as its main medium. Operating at a frequency from 20 Hz to 40 Hz, the sound propagates spatially in a very particular manner, forming static physical clusters of intense sound with areas of silence throughout the space of the gallery.  Whiskey Sours will be served to accompany the piece, available from the foyer bar 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.

You can’t paint over an issue, but you can paint over an artwork! Maser mural update.

We are painting over the Maser Mural (again) The Charities Regulator has informed Project Arts Centre that the display of Maser’s ‘Repeal the 8th’ artwork is ‘political activity’ and that we are therefore in breach of the Charities Act 2009 and not in line with our ‘charitable purpose’. Should the artwork not be removed, we risk losing our charitable status. Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork. Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said: “The Board and executive of Project are conscious of their obligations under…

Repeal the 8th: Maser's Mural Reinstalled at Project Arts Centre

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…
