Alice Maher – Rua Red 2020

Written by Ingrid Lyons on . Posted in News

Rua Red has announced a groundbreaking commission for their 2020 programme with the launch of an extensive series of new commissions with some of Ireland’s foremost female arts practitioners. Taking place in 2020, the programme explores and responds to the figure of Mary Magdalene through the creation of new work by visual artists Amanda Coogan, Rachel Fallon, Jesse Jones and Alice Maher, writer and Director Grace Dyas and dancer/choreographer Oona Doherty. Maolíosa Boyle, Director of Rua Red, is the programme curator. Mary Magdalene is a subject of fascination and curiosity, a conflicted and mysterious figure encompassing many opposing qualities. She is defined as both noble yet humble, strong yet morally weak, beautiful yet haggard, passionate yet penitent, erotic yet reclusive, one who loved many and was yet seen as superficial, a sinner who sought redemption, someone of extreme vanity yet lived in a cave covering herself and hiding from humanity. Rua Red’s new commissions programme will explore how we have constructed Magdalene’s character through her many manifestations and how has she has influenced female history and current views and treatment of women.

Custom House Studios & Gallery
The Quay, Westport
Co.Mayo
A conversation with some of the artists will be held on Thursday the 25th October at 5.30pm.

Sonia Shiel, Nevan Lahart, Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Kathy Tynan, Aileen Murphy, Marcel Vidal, Stephanie Deady, Stephen Loughman, Lesley-Ann O’Connell, Cecilia Danell, William O’Neill, Pat Byrne, Salvatore of Lucan, Robert Armstrong, Mark Swords, Dermot Seymour, Julia Dubsky and Joe Scullion.

Island Life will have it’s second outing later this month in Custom House Studios Gallery, Westport. The exhibition will include some new works by previously exhibited artists as well as the addition of Nevan Lahart, Aileen Murphy, Dermot Seymour, and Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh.

Painting exists in an increasingly sophisticated visual world that sometimes seems to have a diminishing interest in the possibilities of paint. Island Life is concerned with the idea that, within the medium of paint there are opportunities for the individual to question the situation we live in and the resources we share. The paintings in this exhibition address the human condition and each of the artists suggests the capacity of the medium of paint to encompass both personal and universal concerns.

Vox Materia

Crawford Art Gallery, Cork

Emmett Place, Centre, Cork

7 September – 24 November 2018

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.

Selected by the pupils from Room 13 Inquiry, in association with Draíocht
Ground Floor Gallery
and Carrier of Memories by Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske
Draíocht’s inaugural INCUBATE commission, curated by Sharon Murphy
First Floor Gallery

HOME consists of two distinct yet related exhibitions focusing on the theme of home.

More than Bricks and Mortar: Works from the IMMA Collection is a collaboration between Draíocht and the children from Room 13 Inquiry, providing a unique and exciting opportunity to reflect on meanings of home for children in contemporary Dublin 15, which has a very young, diverse and multi-ethnic population. It has, in fact, the fastest growing young people’s population under 30 in Ireland, with 26% of the population under 15 years of age. Nearly 25% of the population are described as the ‘new’ Irish which is double the national average. Through sharing experiences of home and exchanging skills and knowledge of contemporary art, collections and curating, this collaboration will result in an exhibition that expands perceived notions of home at personal, social and cultural levels and give voice to a new generation of Irish children. The Irish Museum of Modern Art Programme is designed to promote the widest possible involvement with the Museum’s Collection and programmes, through supporting access opportunities to the visual arts in a variety of situations and locations in Ireland. Room 13 Inquiry is an initiative of Fingal County Council’s Arts Office under the direction of Julie Clarke and led by resident artists Orla Kelly and Anne Cradden. Room 13 studios based in Scoil Bhríde Cailíní NS Blanchardstown and Tyrrelstown Educate Together NS are the first such school-based studios to open in the Republic of Ireland.

Elaine Byrne will take part in a group exhibition opening tonight at the ISCP, New York

Artists in the exhibition: Elaine Byrne, Danilo Correale, Simone Couto, Alexis Dahan, Furen Dai, Jude Griebel, Joshua Liebowitz, Martha Skou, and Raul Valverde.

Never Take a Vacation with an Artist Who Collects the Same Stuff You Do is a group exhibition featuring the work of the nine artists in residence in ISCP’s Ground Floor Program. The presentation focuses on vacation and leisure time, a premise that the artists developed in collaboration. Works include Martha Skou’s audio-visual interpretation of a recent summer road trip, where she entered a community as a foreigner and left as a member; Simone Couto’s cross-stitch of a surveillance sign which reminds the viewer that privacy is a rare and precious commodity even while on vacation; and Danilo Correale’s 1001 Ways to Live Without Working (after Tuli Kupferberg), a performance activated by a screensaver, which liberates the ISCP front desk staff from working for a period of time. Set to open during the leisurely days of summer, this exhibition aims to lull the viewer into a state of relaxation.

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.
