IMMA Collection: Freud Project is a major five-year initiative for IMMA, where fifty-two works by painter Lucian Freud (1922-2011) have been lent to the museum’s Collection by private lenders. During this unique project, IMMA will present a series of Freud-related exhibitions each year. The third exhibition in the series, Gaze, continues to actively explore Freud’s practice by positioning other works from the IMMA Collection alongside selected works by Freud. As the title suggests, the exhibition is concerned with a human gaze; of the artist, the sitter or the viewer of the work. Gaze particularly asks us to examine relationships between the artist and the sitter, and also focuses on the representation of the nude and the oftentimes visceral portrayal of the body in art, particularly in Freud’s work. Unfolding over a series of three floors in the dedicated Freud Centre, the exhibition encourages the visitor to journey from room to room, allowing space for reflection, but always considering who is gazing at whom. At times you are sharing the viewpoint of the sitter, at times the artist, but you are always involved in a constant exchange between all three perspectives in the room; the viewer, artist and sitter Showing alongside […]
This loan exhibition presents a selection of the finest eighteenth-century Venetian works from the UK’s Royal Collection. Paintings, drawings and prints by Canaletto will be shown alongside groups of paintings and drawings by his contemporaries, including Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Francesco Zuccarelli, and Giovanni Battista piazzetta. Most of these works were acquired by George III directly from Joseph Smith, British Consul in Venice, who was a passionate collector, dealer and supporter of Venetian artists and Canaletto’s most enthusiastic patron. As well as offering superb examples of eighteenth century Venetian art, the exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the social circles and artistic networks of the period. The exhibition will be complemented by two publications: a full-length 400-page hardback catalogue and a mini-booklet featuring selected highlights.
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is pleased to present Efference Copy Mechanism, a large-scale installation by Ronan McCrea. The exhibition comprises a complex arrangement of superimposed slide and 16mm film projections that draw on the artist’s personal archive and accumulated image bank, continuing his ongoing exploration of celluloid materiality, appropriated and found images, instructional film and pedagogy, reproduction and indexicality. The darkened gallery space is divided by a line of steel archive storage shelves. From within this structure – at once functional and symbolic – an array of signals, control boxes, cables, looping mechanisms and projectors orchestrate the combination of images onto the surrounding walls. This spine-like structure is a key to the exhibition’s title. In neurological terms an efference is a motor signal from the central nervous system to the periphery. A copy of this signal – an efference copy – is created as the signal exits the brain and is re-routed to other areas of the sensory cortex, thus explaining our perception of stability despite constant eye movement, and how sensory signals generated from external stimuli can be distinguished from signals resulting from one’s own actions. Efference Copy Mechanism acts as a metaphor and framework for the artist’s thinking on his […]
All of Edna O’Brien’s novels published during the 1960s were ruled “indecent and obscene” under the Censorship of Publications Act. This started when the publication of The Country Girls caused outrage. It was banned in Ireland by the authorities and publicly burned by the clergy. Notoriety quickly turned to fame and this coming of age story of two young women in 1950s Ireland became a best-seller.

St Patrick’s Festival | Seán Mac Erlaine Terra Firmish is a new musical work commissioned by St Patrick’s Festival, written by Seán Mac Erlaine for dance, harp, clarinet, marimba, percussion, and electronics. The piece is inspired by the history of Teampall Caomhán, a tenth century church on Inis Oírr. For hundreds of years this small church was continuously excavated by its community as it sank deeper into the sandy island. Today it has been secured with brickwork but it is significantly lower than its immediate surrounding landscape. Terra Firmish is a poetic interpretation of this story drawing on the contemporary dance of Emma O’Kane and visual design of Michelle Browne within Mac Erlaine’s score which is part elegy and part playful commentary on the increasing absurdity and inevitability of the situation. Featuring performers: Dance • Emma O’Kane (Ireland) Harp • Maeve Gilchrist (Scotland) Woodwinds, electronics • Seán Mac Erlaine (Ireland) Marimba, percussion • Alex Petcu (Ireland) Fri 15 Mar | 7:30pm | Main Space Duration: 70 min
