Guest at Newbridge House: New Considerations of Familiar Settings - Curator Talk with Marysia Wieckiewicz Carroll

Offline

Guest at Newbridge House is a new programme, developed in partnership with Fingal Arts Office, where contemporary artists and curators become annual Guests at the 1736 house. These Guests are invited to animate the house’s collection in fresh and exciting ways – juxtaposing the new and the old in this thought-provoking exercise.

Our inaugural Guest Curator, Marysia Wieckiewicz Carroll, has taken inspiration from a significant influence on the house, Lady Betty Cobbe, to curate the exhibition New Considerations of Familiar Settings. The exhibition features 11 female and gender minority artists, who use a range of artistic mediums. Join the curator on Culture Night, consider parallels across the centuries, and explore cultural narratives through sculpture, painting, and film.

A Burning Tide: Writing Commission Performance

Offline

Fingal Arts Department in association with the Irish Writers Centre has commissioned six pieces of new writing, including monologues, short stories, poetry and prose. These will not only commemorate the anniversary of the formation of the Irish State in 1921, but will also mark the 30th anniversary of the Irish Writers Centre. These pieces, including work by Irish Writers Centre Ambassadors Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Ciara Ni É and Mike McCormack as well as Dermot Bolger, will be based on a reimagined and personal interpretation of the burning of the North Dublin coastguard stations on the night of June 18th, 1921.

The project, A Burning Tide, will promote a better understanding of this part of Irish history, and allow these talented writers to explore and draw new, exciting, new ideas from this historical event. A Burning Tide will be screened on location at Loughshinny Harbour, one of the very harbours which the IRA men set alight.
