LATITUDE: Premier screening of the LATITUDE film and ENGAGE colloquium.

The ENGAGE colloquium will draw on local, national and international contributors to promote discussion on a range of socially engaged arts practices addressing issues of marginalisation, civic participation and post-conflict society.

The LATITUDE film traces community displacement and socio-cultural dividing
lines along three cross-border rivers the Blackwater, the Erne and the Foyle. The film is both layered and abstract, moving visually into these underwater terrains creating a dialogue ‘above’ and ‘below’ the waterline.
LATITUDE is a Making Great Art Work – Open Call 2016 award funded by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.

Hats in the Belfry | Group Exhibition at Burren College of Art, Co. Clare

Hats in the Belfry | Group Exhibition at Burren College of Art, Co. Clare

28 September to 27 October 2017

Burren College of Art is delighted to host Hats InThe Belfry, an exhibition of three emerging London-based artists. Hats In The Belfty chronicles the Guinness-fuelled journey of three young painters through the eerie landscapes of The Burren to the grey streets of Galway. A fabled trip, defined for these young men by three distinct encounters with loneliness, perfectly embodied in an unexpected conversation with a homeless Jazz Mandolin player; the window-displayed-work of an unseen boat painter; and a comedic recurring fictional character, Uncle Monty.

In this exhibition of new work, Anthony Banks, Alex Gibbs and Woody Mellor consider these embodiments of loneliness in the face of their own lonely profession. This trip, and indeed these three characters, become a sort of conduit for the artists’ own indulgence and cry for attention from anyone who will listen.

Burren College of Art maintains an academic partnership with the Royal College of Art in London, including postgraduate studio exchanges. In the Spring of 2016, the College was delighted to host Anthony, Alex and Woody as exchange students and now welcomes them back as exhibiting artists.
