Join the artists of the Array Collective in a lively chat and Q&A about their Turner Prize-winning work The Druthaib’s Ball currently on exhibit in Galway Arts Centre.
About Array Collective:
Array Collective is a group of 11 artists rooted in Belfast who create collaborative actions in response to socio-political issues affecting Northern Ireland. Array Collective questions traditional identities in the North of Ireland using humour and DIY approaches. They playfully merge performance, protest, ancient mythology, photography, installation, and video. Their work embraces joy and empathy in their art-activist practice and calls attention to our need for one another by joining wider demands for rights.
Array Collective is the first Northern Irish artist to win the prestigious Turner Prize. They were awarded the prize for their work The Druthaib’s Ball in 2021.
Array Collective are Sighle Bhreathnach-Cashell, Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell, Jane Butler, Emma Campbell, Alessia Cargnelli, Mitch Conlon, Clodagh Lavelle, Grace McMurray, Stephen Millar, Laura O’Connor, and Thomas Wells.
Galway Arts Centre presents a range of exciting events across its two venues; Nuns Island Theatre and 47 Dominick Street from 6 pm – Midnight for this very special Culture Night! Expect master storytelling, artists’ conversations, music, song, and craic!
