Irish Artists at Brisbane Festival
Brisbane Festival kicks off next month and a number of Irish artists have been invited to take part!
Our Project Artists THEATREclub are heading for Brisbane with The Game, which explores the act of buying sex and gives the audience an insight into a world that sits uncomfortably beneath the surface of our day-to-day lives. The Game premiered at Project Arts Centre in October 2015 as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.
Jesse Jones, who will represent Ireland in Venice Biennale 2017, will launch her book The Other North as part of Centenaries: Artists Destabilising Irish Histories. This event focuses on recent video works by artists from across the island of Ireland that shift and destabilise accepted versions of the last 100 years of Irish history.
