Event description

Description

Please join us for an evening with the Irish artist and curator Áine Phillips as part of her Culture Ireland supported LADA residency looking at the ways that Live Art can develop relationships and support exchanges between UK and Ireland, especially in a post-Brexit future.

Áine will talk about recent and forthcoming UK and Irish collaborations and screen a short film made by Mia Mullarkey about the public procession she organised and co-created with the Artists Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment. She will be joined by artists Nigel Rolfe who has created ground breaking performances, working between the two islands since the late 1970's, Helena Walsh, co-founder of the direct-action feminist performance group Speaking of I.M.E.L.D.A. (Ireland Making England the Legal Destination for Abortion), and John Byrne who will revisit his famous Border Interpretative Centre from 2000 and other works addressing the relationships connecting Ireland and the UK.

Áine Phillips is a performance artist and head of sculpture at Burren College of Art at the National University of Ireland, Galway. She co curated with Niamh Murphy Future Histories, a 12 hour group performance in Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin in May 2016, and edited Performance Art: A History published by Live Art Development Agency and Intellect Books, 2015

Please note: All of our events are free. We ask for reservations to give us a sense of numbers for catering etc, however we no longer limit capacities in advance or have waiting lists. So when you book we do encourage you to arrive early or at least promptly - partly to secure a seat but also not to disrupt events after they’ve started.

"I take my responsibility to turn up when I’ve booked a free place maybe even more seriously than when I’ve paid for a ticket. Because with free tickets someone else is paying for that ticket, right? Maybe it’s the organisers, maybe it's the artist, maybe it’s a funding body, but I know that if I’m not paying then someone else is paying for me. So I want to be mindful of that gift, and make sure that it will really be passed on if I decide not to go.” - LADA Audience Member 2018

Thank you for coming to LADA events and we look forward to seeing you soon.
