Relatively Speaking: A guided walking tour (October 2019)

Dates: 17 Oct - 17 Oct

Show Time: 1pm

Tickets: €0 Free (booking required)

Learn more about three city centre arts organisations – Temple Bar Gallery + Studios  Gallery of Photography Ireland and Project Arts Centre – join forces for a guided walking tour through their current exhibitions, and offer an insight into contemporary art in Ireland. Led by a team of friendly staff this is a chance for you to take a glimpse into the world of contemporary art, and ask all the question you always wanted to know the answers to.

This tour will begin at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. Visitors will then be guided to the Gallery of Photography Ireland and concludes at Project Arts Centre for an introduction to our current exhibition Wait it Out by Northern Irish artist Sandra Johnston.

We’ll meet on 17 October at 1pm at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. Book your free ticket now and immerse yourself in the world of contemporary art.

Consisting of two main parts, Wait it Out negotiates personal and historical narratives in relation to the reverberation of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. The work reflects upon the indeterminate early days of the peace process and the climate of unease which motivated Johnston to relocate to Dublin in 1997. The central installation, That Apart, is an edit of a five-day consecutive filming process (in the gallery at Project and at IMMA) with Scottish moving-image artist Richard Ashrowan. Overprint is a constellation of videos hosted in the gallery’s black box. It includes edited documentation of one of Johnston’s unannounced street performances, Short Strand (2000/2019) alongside two alternating projections of UTV news clips that chart the rise and decline of The Peace People, a movement that began in 1976 as a protest against the ongoing 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.
