Buckle up for In Case Of Emergency at the Science Gallery where catastrophe is the theme of the day. With this exhibition, the Science Gallery is wondering why apocalyptic happenings are so innately entertaining. They form the plots for films, have been the subjects of books, and even manifest themselves as epic paintings. What is it about Doomsday disasters that has us rapt, gossiping about whether millenarian predictions are coming true? Explore the science behind the sci-fi with dreamers and designers at the Science Gallery’s latest exhibition, full of opportunities to interact with artwork and explore your own relationship with deathly doom. TUE–FRI 12:00-20:00 SAT-SUN 12:00–18:00 CLOSED MONDAYS
Rodney Graham is a writer, painter, photographer, sculptor, musician and more… it seems that there is nothing he cannot do. The Vancouver-based artist first emerged in the late 70s. He played in a band and created site-specific work, like Camera Obscura, which was an optical device the size of a garden shed that he put on his family’s farm in British Columbia. Before long, Graham had produced a series of works based on Sigmund Freud, represented Canada at the Venice Biennale, and exhibited at renowned galleries like Whitechapel Gallery, London, and at the Whitney Biennal. Over the years, this artist has become particularly associated with filmmaking, and IMMA will be displaying a sampling for you to get acquainted with alongside photographic light boxes. It’s impossible to describe Rodney Graham’s style as it is constantly mutating and his referencing is diverse – his work picking up on everyone from Lewis Carroll to Kurt Cobain. Leave your expectations at the door as you encounter Rodney Graham’s peculiar world at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Dublin’s Ambassador Theatre presents Dinosaurs Around the World from Saturday 16th December 2017 for a limited time only. Dinosaurs Around the World takes you back in time on a dinosaur adventure and a tour of an Earth very different from today – a time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and greenery was the norm in Antarctica! With advanced animatronics, a multi-layered narrative, fossils, authentic casts, cutting-edge research and immersive design elements you’ll experience the Age of Reptiles as it comes to life! Dinosaurs Around the World invites you to grab your prehistoric passport to Pangea and discover how plate tectonics, land bridges, and volcanic activity allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe, giving each of the seven continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles. During their 172 million year reign, dinosaurs adapted into a variety of forms due to the conditions of the areas in which they lived. The exhibition includes examples such as the mighty T. rex of North America, the swift Velociraptor of the Gobi Desert, the massive herbivore Amargasaurus form the tropical jungles of South America and ten others! In addition to advanced animatronics, […]
Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers. So are they going to trust this one? And should they? A parent-teacher meeting goes very, very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever.
