BANK,
BLANK
– about new authenticity –
There is an empty bank at Karl Marx Straße, it still stands as the relict of the financial vision of the past centuries. Now the employers have left the building, the vaults are open and the cash machines are dismantled. This institution of faith in cash, trust in money and illusion of prosperity for the many not for the few has moved out. Within this empty shell, one cannot help asking, what else is substantial nowadays, what else is echt?
In a world interspersed with spectacle, illusions, hollow visions and unfulfilled dreams, it does not get only harder to authenticate a thing, but also echt changes its meaning dynamically. Using the bank as a collective laboratory of visions and statements regarding the meaning of realness today in our society, the exhibition brings together 32 works from 25 artists and groups around the sub themes of matter, body and authenticity.

Portraits by Mick O’Dea feature as part of Seamus Nolan’s Traveller Collection at the Hugh Lane

DUBLIN CITY GALLERY THE HUGH LANE

21 June 2018 – 23 September 2018

In 2017, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, came together for the first time to commission a significant socially engaged artist’s project in Dublin. Following submissions by artists from all of the CAPP partners, Irish artist Seamus Nolan’s proposal was successful. Seamus Nolan’s exhibition will comprise of archival material that forms the Irish Travelling People: a Resource Collection and which is borrowed from the Special Collections of Ulster University as well as paintings by Mick O’Dea from the Martin Folan collection at Pavee Point.

In the early 1990s, community activist Martin Folan approached artist Mick O’Dea about working with Travellers. O’Dea painted a series of nine close-up portraits of Traveller men and women, without any props or background identifying them as members of the Traveller community. He painted them, in his own words ‘without any emphasis on their status in life.’ Photo: Left to Right Artist Mick O’Dea with Martin Collins, Director Pavee Point.

EVA International

14th April — 8th July 2018

LIMERICK CITY

Alice Maher will be showing new work at EVA International as part of the Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment.

The Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment was set up in 2015 by Cecily Brennan, Alice Maher, Eithne Jordan, and Paula Meehan. It began as an online campaign appealing to fellow artists, writers, musicians, and actors to put their names to a statement calling for a repeal of Eighth Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland (Article 40.3.3) that equates the life of a pregnant woman with that of the foetus. Three thousand artists have signed the petition so far, demanding the repeal of a law that has caused great mismanagement of women’s health care in Ireland and is a violation of international human rights. The aim of the campaign group is to promote national and international awareness of the restrictive reproductive laws of Ireland and to encourage and inspire other groups and activists to use cultural means to promote social change.

DOUBLE TAKE

The Glucksman

Collections and Context

30 March – 8 July 2018

Sonia Shiel will exhibit work alongside Amanda Coogan, Martin Healy, Fiona Kelly, Alice Maher, Suzanne Mooney, Brian O’Doherty, Garrett Phelan, The Project Twins, and Sonia Shiel Curated by Chris Clarke and Fiona Kearney

Over the past 14 years, the Glucksman has been privileged to show many ambitious site-specific works by Irish artists. DOUBLE TAKE: Collections and Context looks back to some of these innovative moments within our exhibition history by recreating displays by artists who are also represented in the UCC Art Collection. From dramatic gallery interventions to intimate moments of architectural response, art installations from previous Glucksman exhibitions are now shown together with the artist’s work from the UCC Art Collection. In doing so, DOUBLE TAKE invites viewers to consider how we see and understand art in different contexts. The significant presentation of Brian O’Doherty’s works in the Sisk Gallery is part of a larger focus on the artist’s work generated through the One, Here, Now restoration project at the Sirius Arts Centre which is on display in Cobh throughout 2018. DOUBLE TAKE is funded by University College Cork, the Arts Council of Ireland and private philanthropy through Cork University Foundation.

Vox Materia

The Source Arts Centre,
Cathedral Street,
Thurles,
County Tipperary.

Curated by Pluck Projects.

Exhibition opening at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 29th March.

Vox Materia comprises a multi-part installation of sculpture and works on paper. Stemming from Maher’s consideration of a 12th Century mermaid carving at nearby Kilcooley Abbey, this show meditates on voice and silence. The mermaid is a hybrid creature that transgresses boundaries between human and animal, and is often associated with traumatic loss of voice. Maher deploys the mermaid not as a motif, but as an ambiguous and powerful conceptual tool to explore ideas of language, embodiment, agency, and autonomy.

Omega Workshop: An Experiment in Counter-Fashion
January 26 – March 10, 2018

Elizabeth Foundation of the Arts,
323 W. 39th St., 2nd Floor

Elaine Byrne will take part in a project alongside Carmen Argote, Nick Cave, Sky Cubacub, Frau Fiber, Friends of Light, Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, Ruby Hoette, Project KOVR, Fawn Krieger, Jennifer Moon, Marloes ten Bhömer, Marisa Williamson, Andrea Zittel.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 6 – 8 PM

Curated by: Rational Dress Society

Since the birth of fashion in the 19th century, counter-fashion—the practice of dressing to signal political solidarity—has been a site for critical intervention and utopian experimentation amongst activists, artists, and designers. Fashion is often mobilized to effect political change in moments of unrest. Omega, the last letter of the Greek alphabet, continues this tradition, suggesting clothing for “end times.” In Omega Workshop, our clothes are reconceived as an act of resistance in dark times—a collective reimagining of our relationship to dress.

For Omega Workshop, the members of the Rational Dress Society bring together artists, designers and activists who mobilize the language of clothing to critique the existing fashion system and offer alternatives. The exhibition will function as an archive and a laboratory, intended both as a tool to spur the production of future counter-fashion, and a resource for artists and designers interested in pursuing alternative dress. The run of Omega Workshop coincides with New York Fashion Week, offering a necessary counterpoint to the consumer-driven spectacle of the fast fashion in New York’s historical (and diminishing) Garment District.

Songs of Peace: Francis Ledwidge

Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris

25/01 – 13/05Opening night: Thursday 25 January, from 6.30 to 8pm

Mick O’Dea will show work alongside Sven Anderson, Patricia Burns, David Farrell, Clare Langan, Niamh O’Malley, Sasha Sykes

The Irish poet, naturalist, activist, nationalist and soldier, Francis Ledwidge, died in Ypres in 1917 shortly before his thirtieth birthday. A century later, curator Sabina MacMahon has selected work by seven visual artists in response to the life and work of Ireland’s soldier poet. Ledwidge’s final volume of poems ‘Songs of Peace’ illustrates his poignant longing for the countryside of his home county of Meath. This intimate connection with landscape together with the conjoined themes of love and loss are explored in different ways by each artist presented in the show – an ode to the contemporary relevance of the poet’s oeuvre.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Solstice Arts Centre, Co Meath.

The curator Sabina MacMahon will give a guided visit of the exhibition at 6pm on the opening night (reservation recommended).

KRIEG, Belgium presents a new publication titled, Vic Sims of the Hollow Gram. This is the first monographic publication on the work of Irish artist Nevan Lahart and it features an autonomous text by Sebastián Gonzalez de Gortari.

Lahart’s artistic practice spans a career of more than twenty years, including numerous monumental projects, full of word plays, (art) historical references, and life as he finds it. In his more recent work, he beckons us to pay attention to alternative theories and their potential to tell us truths that have been obscured in the past for reasons both benign and malevolent.

Meanwhile, you can still visit Nevan Lahart’s solo exhibition ‘Liberty Party Shop’, which runs until 30.11.2017.

Hours are 9am–6pm, Monday through Friday. Admission is free. Late openings: November 20 & 30 (until 8pm).
