Galway 2020: Art Trail

Hope it Rains | Soineann nó Doineann Art Trail

Offline

Hope it Rains | Soineann nó Doineann Art Trail invites you to discover some of the city’s newest artworks exploring our relationship to Galway’s weather. Download your art-trail map www.hopeitrains.ie.

As you walk through locations across Galway city and Salthill, turn your head and find yourself immersed in Drowned Galway. Set against familiar Galway views utterly changed by sea-level rising and floods, these images pose a question: how close does the future have to come before we care enough to act? Including work by Joe Lee, Sohail Salem, Emily Ní Bhroin, Deirdre Kennedy, Jeni Roddy and Arran Murphy. Locations: Galway Atlantiquaria, 1 Quay Lane, New Dock Street.

Head to Church Lane in Galway city to see Irish artist Shane O’Malley’s rain-reactive mural Changes, Change. The mural’s shape, size, geometric patterns, and colours change in reaction to rainfall, so the version you see will depend entirely on the weather.

If the clouds don’t part on on Culture Night, drop into any Galway city library and borrow one of Sew Last Season’s beautifully customised umbrellas which promote a sharing culture. 

The city’s walls will become screens for Ukrainian artists Dasha Tsapenko and Nazar Gresko’s film Grain Loves Rain, which chronicles the making of a wearable ecosystem for a rainy climate.

At Town Hall Theatre, see trademporary dancer Kristyn Fontanella’s new solo dance film Plurabelle inspired by the fall of the rain on her body and surroundings.

Fámaireacht Ealaíne le Hope it Rains | Soineann nó Doineann 

Téigh ar fán ar fud na cathrach agus féach thart ar shaothair nua ealaíne Hope it Rains | Soineann nó Doineann, a spreagann muid chun súp a bhaint as an aimsir agus gníomhú ar son na haeráide.

Caith súil ar íomhánna Drowned Galway, a léiríonn radharcanna coitianta na cathrach – seachas iad a bheith faoi uisce. Deartha ag Joe Lee, agus ag taispeáint saothair le Sohail Salem, Emily Ní Bhroin, Deirdre Kennedy, Jeni Roddy agus Arran Murphy, samhlaíonn ‘Drowned Galway’ an chaoi a bhféadfadh muintir na Gaillimhe maireachtáil i i dtodhchaí báite nach bhfuil i bhfad uainn.

Tá múr-phictiúr sráide Changes, change le Shane O’Malley le feiceáil ar Lána an Teampaill. Braitheann an leagan den phictiúir a bhíonn le feiceáil ar an aimsir agus ar chomh trom is atá an bháisteach ag titim.

Beidh ballaí na cathrach mar scáileáin freisin, ag taispeáint gearscannán Grain loves Rain Dasha Tsapenko agus Nazar Gresko, a thugann léargas ar an eiceachóras soghluaiste a chrothuigh siad ar Inis Oírr, agus gur gá a chaitheamh agus a bheathu faoin bháisteach, chomh maith le scannán rince aonair nua le Kristyn Fontanella a spreag titim na báistí ar a corp.

Más Oíche Chultúir fliuch é, buail isteach chuig leabharlann na cathrach agus faigh scáth báistí Sew Last Season (agus leabhar) ar iasacht. Tá chuile scáth báistí maisithe de láimh agus é mar aidhm ag an scéim cultúr comhroinnte agus cineáltas a chur chun cinn.
