Visual Arts Outlook (23/6)

Project Arts Center

In the middle of the month we have many exhibitions that are ongoing, with less openings this week, writes Mary Stevens. The BASS Belfast Artists’ Sonic Showcase Event #5 Alice Burns, Saul Rayson and Helena Hamilton, will certainly be a great night and takes place on Saturday evening at 7pm at FRAMEWERK. We also have the continuation of To Camera at the Golden Thread and Silent Valley by Liam Crichton at Platform Arts in Belfast, so if you haven’t seen them yet I would recommend a visit.

Project Arts Center – Dublin
Riddle of the Burial Ground
11 June -01 August

Curated by Tessa Giblin, Riddle of the Burial Ground explores the nature of buried nuclear waste (pictured). Nuclear Waste presents the world with a potentially huge environmental disaster, the result of which we cannot imagine. These themes are addressed by Giblin through a selection of sculpture, film, photography, documentary, fiction, science-fiction, history, landscapes and imagined futures. The Project Arts Center has taken on this ambitious show throughout its entire venue. The expansive list of artists include Lara Almarcegui, Rossella Biscotti, Simon Boudvin, Matthew Buckingham, Mariana Castillo Deball, Dorothy Cross, Regina de Miguel, Harun Farocki, Peter Galison & Robb Moss, Stéphane Béna Hanly, Tracy Hanna, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Nicholas Mangan and Tejal Shah.

MART: Project Space – Dublin

Too Soon Too Late.
Jason Dunne, Sarah Wilson,  Jennifer Kidd,  Paul Hallahan
Jonathon Carroll (Curator).
June 25 – June 29

Too Soon, Too Late is the first show to make use of MARTs new Project Space. Artists Jason Dunne, Sarah Wilson, Jennifer Kidd and Paul Hallahan have been given the opportunity to work with curator Jonathon Carroll in the Project Space for a number of months. Working sometimes individually but more often collaboratively the artists have developed their practice together in the temporary studio space. Too Soon, Too Late is a chance to see some of the work developed over this time.
