As part of Project 50, Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 11 Nov - 28 Jan

Free admission Mon – Sat from 11am

Opening Reception: Thu 10 Nov 6pm – 8pm All welcome!

The Wild is a celebration of the networks and communities, friends and co-conspirators, memories and visions of Project Arts Centre by the creatives and artists at the heart of our organisation.

It is a collaborative group show that will change, evolve and develop over time, as practices and art forms collide, collaborate, push and pull together and apart. Experiences and artworks will accumulate, and the show will shape-shift, grow and shrink at will.

The Wild’s varied, cumulative and unpredictable form alludes to the Anthropocenic idea of ‘the wild’ as something that resides within us, that we are a part of, within the earth system, as opposed to something that happens outside the human experience of the world, the great wilderness out there beyond us.

A chaotic and episodic happening, The Wild has work bursting in and out of the gallery space, with ritualistic performances and short-term residencies regularly punctuating the exhibition. The physical shape of the show also changes over the course of its duration.

Featuring the work of no less than 15 artists, The Wild brings together visual artists, theatre makers, dramaturges, musicians, writers, filmmakers, playwrights, dancers, broadcasters and lighting designers, creating temporary collaborations between individual practices and art forms, showcasing the depth and breadth of Project’s relationship with the creative community over the last 50 years.

The Wild features the work of Eleanor Duffin, Dylan Coburn Gray, Megan Kennedy, Dan Colley, Sarah Jane Shiels, Seamus Nolan, Liv O’Donoghue, Barbara Knezevic, Oisín Byrne, Oonagh Kearney, Kate Heffernan, Sarah Pierce & Vaari Claffey, Caoimhín O’Raghallaigh, Dylan Haskins and Bisi Adigun.

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…
