ADMISSION FREE

We are delighted to announce that Czech artist Eva Koťátková’s Theatre of Speaking Objects will be running daily in our Cube theatre space until 14 February.

Theatre of Speaking Objects knits together extraordinary, poignant and personal accounts of complex relationships with language. Eva Koťátková has gathered stories and remembrances from around the world, and located them within a cast of used objects and therapeutic props, things that are used to speak for the subjects – subjects who sometimes cannot speak for themselves – becoming mediators and containers for human voices and personal stories.

Theatre of Speaking Objects runs daily from 11am – 8pm, and is predominantly performed in English. The characters range from an account of two brothers who communicate only in the third person, to an individual who compulsively rehearses daily conversations, to another who seems trapped in an extensive list of fears. Cumulatively, these voices reflect on social exclusion and isolation, at the same time giving life back to objects that are mute.

Eva Koťátková is joined by Dominik Lang to collaborate on Wasteland, a new exhibition for our gallery, opening on Thursday 6th February, 6-8pm.

Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang join Project Arts Centre in thanking the many individuals and organisations that have supported these projects, including the voices lent by Nyree Yergainharsian, Jose Miguel Jimenez, Robert McDermott, Cian O’Brien, Noelle Brown, Sarah Pierce and Hugo Byrne, Annette Devoy and Jasmin Maher. Further warm thanks to Christy Maher, Dublin City Council Eamonn Ceannt Park, Galerie Hunt Kastner in Prague, and to the generosity of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in providing a Production Residency for Koťátková and Lang during their time in Dublin.

Open Call - Future Forecast: HAVEN

Project Arts Centre is pleased to announce an open call for a series of 3 artist commissions. Future Forecast is a series of events and artistic interventions forming part of a speculative voyage towards the future. Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

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.…
